The premise is simple. If someone wanted to catch a monster, then someone first had to bait the hook. However, the name implies the obvious, this is an involved climb, often mistaken as self-abuse, with a lot of things that you can do with your hands.

This pumpy route starts on a pedestal and gets steep real quick. Work your way up a series of pockets to a small ledge. From there small pockets lead to bigger pockets to a small roof pull with a series of neat, sequential moves.

But don't blow your load just yet! The rest of the route has small pockets and crimpers that are guaranteed to leave you exhausted and satisfied.


Monster Baiter is located to the left of Shoot the Moon and Hopeful Monsters. It might even be the perfect warm-up for these forearm killing climbs.


Eight bolts and sporty anchors. More confident climbers might choose to skip the first bolt or just use a longer draw to reduce potential rope drag.


Great Route Brent! I'm still pumped. Thanks for the belay. Apr 10, 2012
