Description

This fun little crack is good to play on if you're looking for a little bit of spice in your life. While simple looking, finicky gear leads to a surprisingly steep splitter that has spit off many a 5.10 climber. Once you've topped out the crack climb easy 5th class to the anchor very far right.

Location

This route is under vein of gold and right of easy rider. It is to the right and slightly uphill of up Orangutan and Too Much Fun.

Protection

gear to 3 inches. Tricams apparently help at the bottom. 2 bolt ASCA anchor to the right.

Not quite as hard of a crux as Orangutan but another stout 5.9 on the Monolith. Harder than Flakey and ZigZag, but less heady than ZigZag due to better pro. The upper crack to top-out is the crux. With a pumpy, jammy stretch to a not-so-positive and slightly dirty top-out coming out of the crack crux. Opportunities for relatively good and trustworthy placements can ease the pressure.
