Start at the same start for the Monkey Traverse on the far right side of the problem. Then follow the side pulling ledge up to a solid rap-around horn. Throw up just above the horn to a rotting huge boulder with good jugs, then climb up over for an ugly but fun top out. A committing problem but fairly relaxed.


Located on the Monkey Traverse wall on the same start as the Monkey Traverse.


A couple of crash pads and a spotter.

Again ... FWIW, the FA was by Pat Ament in the early/mid 1960s.
