Cleaning up Funky Monkey, the first bolt after the...


Climb the first three bolts of Quickly Funky and traverse right to the last two bolts of Chunky Monkey. Finish on the ledge with the anchor. This climb was "discovered" after the first two routes were established on this face, Quickly Funky and Chunky Monkey.


This climb is a link-up of two routes, Quickly Funky and Chunky Monkey, on the face left of Been Caught Stealin'.


7 bolts to two-bolt chain anchor.

This is the nicest of the 3 routes here. Good clean rock and good pro the whole way.

This is now 7 bolts total. I added two bolts to the top of this yesterday, making the final moves on to the ledge less runout and negating the need to bring a single cam for the last part. Before anyone complains about the bolt placement, please consider that the rock is super hollow in the upper portion of the climb and is largely inappropriate for bolts.
