Cruxes where you don't expect 'em!

Rests where you need 'em (including a great hueco to huddle in).

Start right of the crack, moving left into the crack. 1st mini-crux is moving back right onto the lower angled rock trending to the large ledge (and 1st rest). Crux of climb comes just above the ledge as you move left aiming for the large hueco. After shaking out, move through the final few bolts quickly as the terrain gets a little steeper above.


In the "New Zoo" area. The "New Zoo" area is reached by going to the right when you reach the small arch at the top of the approach trail from the parking area. Barrell Full of Monkeys is the 6th route from the left end of the "New Zoo", just right of the crack.


11 bolts, chain anchors.

The route description says it starts right of the crack but the location says it is left of the crack. It is right of the crack Sep 10, 2015
