Description

A difficult finger crack layback and dyno will get you off the ground to the nice face climb above. Start on the same ramp/corner system as Cliff Monster, but instead of going left up the ramp, go directly up the crack to the ledge above. The crux move may be significantly harder now that a trad climber broke this hold by falling on a cam placement. From the ledge, make a bee line for the top on the smooth face, using thin cracks and crimps. It's 5.10+ near the top if you stay on the smooth face to the left of the "Mar..." graffiti, but right of the blocky Cliff Monster route. Top out through the same notch as Cliff Monster.

Location

Top and bottom of the route is the same as Cliff Monster.

Protection

Use the same anchor blocks and/or bolts as Cliff Monster.
