From a small boulder at the base of the wall pull cobbles to a deep pocket. Mantle and side pull to surmount a shelf under the bulge. Pull the bulge on a shallow scoop and an array of pebbles of questionable integrity. Once established above the bulge continue pulling cobbles and features up a shallow corner to the anchors.


Ten feet right of "Cobble Me a Climb."


5 bolts & steel carabiner style anchor.

Maidy bolted TR anchors and named this climb "Monkey Flower" according to her comment on the adjacent climb. See below comment

Erik and I actually placed the original anchor up top and started cleaning both the cobble face and the cleaner face to the right a few years back.
The right side ("Monkey Flower") has an 10d/11a move at the top after moderate climbing.

The climbs are really short and rock quality is extremely poor (particularly on the cobble section) - so we left them as TR's and passed on bolting.

There is an additional issue with this rock being directly on top of the hiking trail. It is difficult to keep packs and people out of the way of the through traffic and you hazard knocking rocks off on hikers so be courteous and take care." Apr 28, 2017
^^^^^What's your point, Mike?^^^^^

Looks like a repost of comments for Cobble me a climb. If you have an original thought or comment post it, otherwise why repost negativity.

JTLA Tolins addressed the issue in his response to Maidy's post.
They didn't care for the stone, but JTLA Tolins did and put up a nice challenging route. As he indicated there's ample space for hikers and through traffic to pass and not be bothered by packs, ropes, etc. Apr 29, 2017

Ally, I don't have much of a point or even an opinion - just a FYI from info I've noticed. May 1, 2017
Yes- Erik and I placed the original anchors at the top of this climb, spent an eternity cleaning it and named it "Monkey Flower". It was a little difficult to access the top and the route was mediocre quality. Key holds kept shedding off (one at the top is glued if anyone notices) , so we never bolted it and left it as a TR. We explored bolting "Cobble Me" as well and passed.

The point Ally ... is simply accuracy of information.

If you guys enjoy it .. GREAT!!! Have at it I'm happy. Oct 14, 2017

What Maidy & Mike said.

We passed on this one because of quality issues, concern about hikers, etc.

Glad you enjoy it, but no mention of existing anchors?
