Climb the Pioneer route to the cave. Monkey off my Back starts from the second or third bolt after the Panic Point.

Route Description

Climb out of the cave via the normal route past the Panic Point. At the second or third bolt traverse right (as opposed to going straight up to the nose). Follow the bolt line as it traverses right and up from the third bolt. Keep traversing right on jugs and ledges until bolt line heads up a shallow dihedral. (5 bolts from the start in the cave). Climb straight up the low angle corner past the last bolt to below a vertical looking headwall. Climb headwall up 8 ft to the anchors on the top of the Monkey.
