Description

Monkeypox shares first pitch with Cowpox, then follows a crack system to the right, past a ridge line, and continues up a corner toward the top of the right side of Zoonotic.

Pitch 1, 5.7, (identical to Pitch 1 of Cowpox). Go up a shallow draw to the right of the chimney splitting Zoonotic. Stop at a large crack about 6 feet past the end of the chimney.

Pitch 2, 5.5, go up along the line of small blocks clustered around a crack (see image). Stays below the large block on the ridge line. Belay from a comfortable spot on the ridge.

Pitch 3, 5.6, traverse right under the wall using a bridge of boulders (protectable). Go up the nice, clean corner to its end, then continue slightly left over easy terrain to the ridge and along the ridge to the top.

Location

Starts just to the right of the main gully which splits Zoonotic, ends at the top of the slab on the right side of it.

To get down, you can do an exposed scramble to the left and walk off as for Cowpox. Rapelling off the large live tree at the top of the slab is another option. To keep the rope from snagging on a lower tree, we stopped at the first large ledge with a second rappel of this lower tree.

Protection

Standard rack, with an emphasis on small pieces.
