This is the right-most route on the wall, 10' left of Monk. Take the easiest way up the wall and it's pretty straight forward.


Descent: Kiddie Land Rappel, found by walking the ledge to the left.


Standard rack to #3 Camalot.

Worth noting difficulty and variants.

Left of arete is likely 5.2
Direct over right side of arete (as described above) on grade at 5.3
Traverse right at ledge to chimney ~5.4 (don't fall!)
Straight up arete (heel hook action here) ~5.4
