The white monkey making bad decisions.


Easy face right near road through some small overlaps and vertical sections. Great holds, just watch for loose cobbles.

Name comes from the locals driving by on motorcycles during the first ascent and commenting about what they saw clinging to the rock.


Left side of face when looking from the road. Loosely follows a faint water groove through several overlaps and sandstone bands to the summit.


None, done solo... limited natural pro available.

Descent is downclimbing the route (not recommended) or downclimbing the far side of the boulder (also not recommended). Best bet is to bring a rope and hand drill to make a rappel.
