DescriptionAmong the jumble of rocks on the right side of Monsters hides this unlikely, and classic, problem. The problem climbs a beautiful steep face that is streaked with vertical quartz intrusions.
Start sitting. Use sidepulls, pinches, and drop knees to power and technique your way up the face. A heroic throw to the lip provides a fitting end to this amazing problem.
LocationTake the Shortcut trail up the long wooden stairs then traversing the hillside above the 5.8 Crag, like you were headed towards Bonsai. Just after passing the lone Midway boulder, instead of turning up the hill continue straight (towards the Blackjacks) and in a minute you will be walking below the Monsters boulders. As you first get to them, look uphill from the path and you will see the top of this problem above the first tier of rock, up and left of Los Pollos-Hermanos It is easiest to get to by hooking up and around to it from the right.
It's worth taking some time to explore this area, as the jumbled rocks create a cool system of faces and caves.
