Description

Aggro Monk is a good line involving a really fun, athletic boulder problem to clear a body-length roof, and a sustained finish that builds a steady pump. Unfortunately the rock on the upper headwall is not as good as it looks, detracting slightly from the route's quality.

Scramble up the right end of the flake to a no-hands stance below the roof. A hard move gains the break, then launch out the horizontal roof on small but sinker pockets. Clever beta or wild dynos will get you over the lip to a poor rest. Long, technical moves between small crimps and the odd pocket weave deviously up the stout headwall.

Location

On the Heaven Wall (which is near the left end of The North End). This is the second route from the left.

Protection

~6 bolts to 2 BA. Currently there are fixed draws on the headwall. Bring a sling or long draw for the first bolt (DMM Revolver helps). There's a big runout on 5.3-ish terrain to reach the first bolt.
