Flying Monkeys differs from the standard Munchkinland fare in that ascends blocky, featured, orange rock up a subtle arete for 10 bolts in 80 feet. The route starts with a scramble to a high first bolt. From here jugs, sidepulls, and even a small fingerlock will keep your attention. The route is broken by a ledge a little past the halfway mark, which is reached on mild but slightly more runout terrain. In my opinion there are two crux sections.
Flying Monkeys is a great route for someone breaking into the 5.10 grade or as a skin and tendon friendly warmup for the harder stuff. Recommended.

|One of my favorites in the area. There is a shortage of tall routes in Munchkinland and this one does not disappoint. Highly featured climbing on big holds.|
