Description 

Start either below the high flake at the bottom of the gully, or scramble up to the large flake and belay from there, OR down low and E in the gully belay from the 18" pine tree. Somehow achieve the top of the large flake, move up clip two bolts keeping you safe in retirement, and up and left to the crack amid the face. Climb the crack or alongside, or lieback, with some good pro. From a large coffee maker sized bump, clip the bolt nearby and head straight up, feeling less confident about retirement on steep face climbing.

Location 

The route is on the south side of the Monster summit nearer the east end. From the large granite slab E of the Monster summit, approaching the gully that splits the Monster summit, stop BEFORE you head up into the splitting gully. There are 2 chimneys on the E end, this route is BETWEEN the first 2 chimneys. Rap the route, as of this date, there isn't a second pitch. Also, without climbing another route and rapping from a horn above this route, leaving gear, there is NO TOP ROPE opp.

Protection 

2 bolts below the crack close together to prevent decking on the flake, then several pieces in the crack including 5-6 pieces nothing larger than a large stopper or .75 or maybe a #1 BD cam. A couple small stoppers or brassies will go. Also, there is one bolt at the top of the crack and chain anchors. Additionally, the anchor is clearly visible from the Granite Slab E of the Monster summit.
