Grease Monkey - 5.9

Closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Right leaning hand & fist crack.
Start in lower crack & move to upper crack when possible (about 10').
Pro is good until the crack peters out just below the ledge (5.9 move)
Traverse off ledge to tree (climber's left) to walk off.

Location 

After reaching slab on approach (after the pond & little forest) - turn left (about 10 o'clock) and head up to orange & black wall.
Climb is furthest left of this group (is 100 yards or more left of Lord Caffiene).

Protection 

Standard rack with extra 3-4".
3/4 - 1" gear needed for anchor at back of little ledge at the top (may need to excavate dirt to expose the crack)
Very well protected except top of crack 6 feet before ledge.
