West Face
Leading P1 of West Face (5.12 A0 or C2) - few bolts to C2 pin scars to C1 crack to more bolts. Shirley's belaying. That C2 section would be scary to do free on lead. This line climbs the tallest aspect of Monkey Face at ~350 feet (March 2007).

Thank you very much!
that first pitch is fun. the upper pitches are all A0 ladders. Still fun as the exposure if significant and the jokers put a couple bolts WAAAY out of reach :)

Photo credit goes to Coolpix autopilot :)

1 of the high bolts was out of reach even from last step......(biner + screamer)*McGyver factor = makeshift 10" stick clip = solution

:) hehheheheh
