This is a good trad line. Start in a left-facing corner just left of "Chunky Monkey", about 30' right of "Honey, I Shrunk the Hemorrhoids."

Climb the corner (gear), step right, and continue past the overhang and headwall of Chunky Monkey (2 bolts) to the anchors. The overhang can be tackled directly (harder) or to the right (easier).

It's possible to top-rope Chunky Monkey after ascending this route. Chunky Monkey is really a 5.10a/b route, not 5.8, with hard moves getting to the first bolt.


Gear to 2" plus 2 bolts at the top; 2-bolt anchor shared with "Chunky Monkey."

For Table, this is a great line with consistent moves all the way up.

Fun route. It has a little bit of everything stuffed into 60 feet or so. I used four cams on the trad section, #1 Camalot and smaller.
