Approach


Either Trail to Monkey Face. The Route Starts on the obvious 5 bolts to the crack.

Route Description


P1 Aid 5 bolts to a C2 crack follow the crack for about 100 feet, a few tricky placements, but cam hooks and offset nuts make it easier, clip a few more bolts and matle to the belay on a small ledge. (C2)

P2 Follow bolts to either belay anchors. (C1)

P3 Follow bolts to low 5th moves into the incredible west face cave. (C1 Low 5th)

(Pitches 2 & 3 can be combined with a 65 meter rope, and I belive a 60, make sure to protect the sharp edge for the jug)

P4 Follow Bolts with occasional free moves to the summit ancors. (C1 5.6)

Essential Gear


double set of cams to 2 inches (aliens and tcus are nice)
double set of nuts (offsets usefull)
single set of micro nuts (offsets usefull)
cam hooks
talon hook (incase bolt is missing)
other aid stuff

Bivy in the cave!!!
