The first pitch is good. It is 155 feet of 10c climbing with good protection. The second pitch is 11a that is really runout! I wouldn't recommend this pitch.


This is on Printer Boy ledge.


Bolts. You need 19 quickdraws for 10c pitch.

The 10c pitch on this route is fantastic. I remember a short crux about 2 or 3 bolts up from Printer Boy ledge and then fun climbing with good rests that seems to go on forever! I feel that the second, 11a, pitch should be done to finish on top of Monitor Rock. It's a 1-move wonder slab crux. Once you clip the bolt after the crux wander up and left towards the large dihedral through unprotected terrain. Although scary, the climbing is only 5.6 or 5.7 and if you've made it this far (climbed 10a, 11b, 10c, 11a pitches) you should have no problems with the climbing. Walk off or rap back down the route.

Classic climbing all the way to the top.

We rapped this route with a single 80m. The first rap took almost the whole rope, and the second rap, onto the Printer Boy Ledge, involved rapping off the ends while barely touching down on to the ledge. So, you can do it, but just be aware that it isn't ideal. Two more raps from Printer Boy Ledge were easily done after that.
