Description [Suggest Change]

This five-pitch route climbs a line left of Otto's Route. It climbs a wide crack at the base of the monument then gains the sprawling, obvious ledge. Above that, there are four shortish pitches which require beaks and thin gear in one of those rounded, Monument crack systems. There is a short ladder of bolts before the capstone.

Location [Suggest Change]

This is left of Otto's Route. See the photo.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Good selections of cams, plus some ironware, including lots of thin stuff (beaks, blades, etc.).
