Description

This route is a linkup: begin with the first two bolts of Power Monkey (PM) then finish leftward on Tunnel Vision (TV). This is a higher quality route than PM in my humble opinion, and these days it sees more action than PM. After the PM crux, I traversed on the jugs just below the third bolt of TV and then clipped said bolt. There was definite ground fall potential. It appears you could move left earlier to the flat ledge below the second bolt on TV. A long runner on that bolt would prevent any drag and the safety factor would be improved. I would say this linkup adds quality without significantly increasing the difficulty of PM. Try it!

Location

Start on the dusty ledge to the right of Tunnel Vision and to the left of Space Cowboy

Protection

I suggest stick clipping #2 of PM to a prevent ground fall while clipping. The safest option is to then clip #2 of TV with a long runner. If you connect at #3 of TV, rehearse the moves first as you could face a dangerous ground fall while clipping. Remember, limestone is a soft rock, and even well traveled Greenbelt routes exfoliate regularly.
