ABS closing down the Puzzled Monkey.

Description 

This crag is located on the far right fringe of North Table Mountain. It is marked by an two-tiered cliff band and only sports about [18] climbs: [7] on the lower band and the remainder on the upper band. The climbs are generally short, stiff climbs 5.10 and higher.

Getting There 

Approach the Child Free Zone by climbing the trail from the parking lot and turning right at the base of the crag (the trail dead ends at This Ain't Naturita, Pilgrim). Follow the trail along the base of the wall past the arete that contains Thelma and Louise, past the gully, and around the corner. The trail eventually dead ends at the right side of the wall. The first route on this wall is Big Loose Goose (5.10a/b).

Monkey Puzzle climbs the large overhang right of Puzzled Monkey and is the first route you pass on the way up to the Brown Cloud crags. A clean, vertical face gains a good stance below the roof. From this stance, a pair of large jugs sets up a cruxy move to the lip with the left hand - from here on out the puzzle begins. I had an opportunity to try and solve Monkey Puzzle with Pat Burwick and Greg Purnell, on separate occasions in February.
