BETA PHOTO: In the middle of "Shock the Monkey" rout...

Description 

5.9 climbing through huge huecos leads to an obvious rest. The climbing thins out above going left past a crimp with poor feet that is clearly the crux. Going left at the top is reportedly more difficult than going right but they both felt about the same.

Location 

3rd route from the right in front of the large rock covered with spectators. Wave to the crowd when you get to the top.

Protection 

Top rope

Climbed this today. Pockets are huge on it through the mid-section, and a friend found a scorpion hiding in one of the larger ones. Highly recommend checking the larger holds before sticking your hands in there, or someone's gonna be a sad panda. Also, the anchors can be a bit wonky, so get ready to have some fun tying an evenly weighted sling.
