Description

This is a beautiful chunk of rock. The fin that Smoking Monk resides on is a very obvious feature in the valley and begs to be climbed. This route gets progressively harder from start to finish, with a couple boulder problem cruxes that are tricky to figure out. Kevin Hutchinson calls this "the best climb in Paradise Valley."

Location

Scramble up to a small ledge left of the route, follow bolts to the top.

Protection

Bolts.
