Description

Wow this route is good! Climb one of the lower tier climbs to gain a sloping ledge, most climbers choose Checkered Dog (5.9) as it leads directly to the base of the climb. Build an anchor or use the anchor for 'Checkered Dog' traverse back to the left to gain a corner and place some weird gear. climb to the beautiful left arching crack and place some small gear, sack up and climb the delicate moves through the smears and small tips until the gear gets bigger. Climb up and slightly right past a bolt or two if I remember correctly.

Location

This route is on the second tier on the right side of the Monolith.

Protection

Small to medium gear... TCUs in the smaller sizes, purples and even some grays might be nice.

A variation of this climb is to climb the dihedral, clip the bolts and then climb a hollow hand and jug flake out right. Unless this is what you are describing? Jun 15, 2015
