Description 

Loch Ness Monster is west of Pentapitch, and consists of an edgy slab and a bouldery roof. Figuring out the sequence is half the problem. If a top-rope is desired, the crack system to the left can be climbed or scrambled up, depending on your comfort level.


Protection 

2 draws are required for this climb, along with 2 more for the chain anchors. Possibly a piece before and after the bolts. Bring a runner for the lower piece.

Lead this one again today, and the sequence, which the book isn't accurate about, defintely works right on the undercling above the roof. Still a tough little route.
