An unknown climber on Full Moon Monkey. Taken on ...


Very fun route with nine bolts that shares anchors with next route on right. Excellent climbing on quality rock make this a route not to be missed in Maple; was originally bolted at 3:30 AM on a full moon night!


Start on a rib between two obvious holes in the wall; Excellent Climbing on this route!


Nine bolts will get you to the fixed anchors for rappel with one rope.

On 5.8.10 I replaced the anchors on this route and gave it dedicated anchors. It used to share anchors with Primate Grooming Procedures but each route now has its own anchors. I did this because there are often lines of people waiting to do the routes on this wall. One of the two lines was always empty because the anchors were occupied by climbers on the other route. No worries now. Climb on!

Confirming that third bolt is still a spinner. 11/6/2012. Actually, quite a few spinners on the routes 5.9 and below (the only ones I climbed). Makes me a little nervous about the rest of the bolts.
