Description

This long and superb crack begins on "Gorillas in the Crack" for the first few moves before moving right up onto a ramp. Moving right and up past four bolts, reach a tough but do-able crack to chains.

Location

This route shares the starting crack with "Gorillas in the Crack" but diverges right over a small head wall and onto a ledge. This ledge leads right and up past four bolts to the upper section crack and chains which is the same anchor for "Monkey Bumps."

Protection

A wide assortment of cams and quick draws.

Watch your runnering on this one, the rope drag could make your life miserable. The highest piece before the traverse tends to place an extended runner right under a small cutout in the roof. Too bad the upper laser-cut crack isn't longer. Aug 8, 2017

This route most definitely has two cruxes. The first is at the top of the initial crack. You are on a comfortable ledge looking up at an overhanging finger crack that ends in an impossible looking head wall. With some well placed pieces you work your way up and as you desperately grope around above the head wall you find, to your surprise, a jug to pull over. Taking a breath or two, move right onto the face past three bolts. Here you can assess your metal! To the right is where your survival instincts want you to go...and that works, but to the left, you can clearly see, the better line awiats. Edgy and off balance with side pulls being key, clip the last bolt prior to entering the most pleasant of hand cracks which leads to chains. Feb 19, 2012
