Stem between walls, transition to the face, then enjoy a fun jug haul to the anchors. One of the longest routes at Monster Rock.


8 draws, supershut anchors.

What a great, fun climb! Not difficult, with a few delicate moves at the start, then straight up the 50' wall.

No offense meant to the person who submitted this page, but the guidebook calls this 5.8 and does not mention or imply stemming. I've led this twice, and although the mossy start is a little unnerving, I don't think this is close to 5.9.

ETA: Apologies-- on the MR site, the grade is as listed here, and for the variation as well. Perhaps John downgraded the routes for his new edition, as both this and its variation are listed as 5.8, and didn't notice the discrepancy with his site.

Anyway, I still think the start is more like 5.8.
