Description 

Mid-Mountain covers climbs between Willow Canyon Circle (~milepost 16) up to the Palisades Ranger Station (milepost 19.4).

This large area has a huge diversity of climbing in cool ponderosa pine forest, offering a great respite from the desert. However, large portions of the forest in this area were burned in the 2004 Aspen Fire. Be on the lookout for falling dead trees and other hazards in burn areas.

As Hendrixson appropriately noted: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.
