Description [Suggest Change]
The thin climb has some really fun climbing, but much easier ground just left of the bolt line detracts from the quality. In addition the large tree introduces some scaryness through the beginning. Start up on easy choss to get to the first bolt. Some fingerlocks and awkward seems get you to the second bolt. From here climb slightly up, then traverse left to obtain the third bolt. Monkey See continues straight up. Traverse left with difficulty and try not to end up on the ledge out left. Or stop here for a nice rest, you are only 3' left of the bolts. Continue up finding a good clipping hold for the fifth bolt, and continue up easier ground with some sketchy looking blocks to the anchors out right.
Location [Suggest Change]
Starts just before the dihedral climbs "Stemulation" and "Pretzel Logic". Shares start with "Monkey See", to the right is "Behind the Scenes", to the left is the dihedral "Stemulation".
Protection [Suggest Change]
5 Bolts to Anchors. Be aware of the large tree, now reaching the second bolt, a fall before clipping the third bolt would not be good, as you would fall through the tree.
