Description

This easy trad route ascends the crack system just left of Puzzled Monkey. Before making an anchor at the top where large blocks are suspect, put in a directional piece and traverse right to the bolted anchor for Puzzled Monkey.

Keep in mind some loose rock does exist, but it is surprisingly solid for a less traveled route.

Protection

A select single rack is sufficient.

This is a good route for its rating, but there is loose rock right where you traverse over to the Puzzled Monkey anchor. Some is ready to fall and is just barely perched so be cautious. I did not clean it, because it would have damaged my things on the ground. Jan 3, 2016

Did this as my first trad lead last weekend. Pretty nice route overall, be prepared for bird shit, and be careful at the top before the traverse. The big blocks at least seemed somewhat well jammed in there, but dislodging one of them could be pretty bad. Mar 10, 2016
