Monsters with belay nooks

Description 

The obvious crack that runs directly to the tree in the center of the wall.

A variation starting <10' left goes up the obvious crack, over a bulge and provides fun stemming before meeting with the main line just over half-way to the tree.

The entire climb and variation meet with Hands Off My Rifle, Indian! at the tree. You can continue up the crack past the tree to the top. Rap rings 20' left make for a simple descent.

The tree is less than 30 m from the ground, so a top rope can be set up. Be kind to the tree if you decide to rap from it.

Location 

The left-most climb in the small ditch that runs from Monsters to Fantastic Coffee. Two small alcoves with flattened areas for the belayer and rope mark the starts. Just follow the cracks.

Protection 

Standard rack

If you want to continue the route past the tree I would strongly advise traversing to the left from the tree for about 8' then up to the anchors. (mind the yuccas)
