Description 

The centerpiece of Kelly, this is the location of some of the canyon's most classic problems including Icy Mike, Dope Lounge, Donkey Punch, Green Mile Direct, and many others. Days worth of excellent climbing may be had in this small area. Lots of these problems are high with slopey topouts and bad landings - bring pads.

Getting There 

Walk right from the Trailer Park past some nice-looking cliffs until you see the Donkey Punch Wall, which begins with a right-trending layback problem, on the left. Dope Lounge, an overhanging highball problem, is directly across the canyon.

Donkey Punch V6 7A PG13  AZ : Northern Arizona : ... : Donkey Punch Area
Sustained flowing moves all the way, with a high crux and a sketchy topout. From a pocket and sidepull around chest height, trend up and right powerfully until you can throw for the good right hand rail near the top of the wall. Push through the sloping mantel at the top, resisting the urge to grab the clods of grass. Excellent, but a bit chossy. Repeated breakage has nudged up the difficulty a bit....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

Are there names for the boulder problems on the low angle wall directly across from Iron Monkey and to the right of the Donkey Punch wall? I found the right line on this wall to be pretty fun.
