I did this climb quiet a long time ago, and it stands out as one of the best single pitches in The Monument. There is a plaque at the base. I seem to remember the upper third of the route being the crux protected by some green Aliens. The climb follows a small crack recessed in a shallow squeeze. I remember doing some squeezing next to a large block that seemed to be fairly secure, but you never know.... You end up jamming with one hand and doing the Wiggle Worm with your body. It is a great climb to do if hiking all the way to Super Crack of the Monument.


This route is roughly a 200 feet up canyon from Supercrack. Look for a plaque and a splitter!


I would take one of each up to a #1 and maybe 3-5 #0.5 Camalots with a few green Alien size, too. There are anchors at the top. Bring two ropes to rap.

Amazing route, but don't be fooled. You'll need all the small gear you've got. I would recommend at least the 2 green Aliens metioned above if not more, but I would also take at least doubles of BD 0.3 and 0.4s as well. I used them all and still wanted more. Great position, amazing climbing...a must do if you wander all the way up to Super Crack.

Followed this yesterday, and I can't wait to head back to lead it. It's just as good as Supercrack. The majority is 5.10, with a short hard crux. You can stretch out your finger sized cams more if you bring a 2, 3, and maybe a 4. Can just barely be lowered off with one 70m rope - knot the end! Anchor webbing is fresh as of yesterday, but you'll probably want to bring your own.
