This is the easiest of the sport routes on the Peta Crag. The climbing is blocky with lots of big holds and short traverses, and eventually meets up with I Amimals, They Taste Good near the top.


Starts right of the arete, on the right side of the formation. Eventually hooks up with the arete near the top.


Quick Draws only. Rap or lower from anchors on the top of I Love Animals, They Taste Good.

Maybe 6 or more bolts/pins on this rascal so come prepared. Big quartz crystals and cool dike features. The smooth knoblike features are neat and climbing fun as the route trends left to join the neighboring anchor. Final exit crossing over the arete is low angle but really fun climbing. Belayers watch for loose rock on PETA routes. They're fun to climb but a little fractured in some areas.

Five bolts on Monkey Burger lead to the arĂȘte where it merges with I Love Animals..., then three more bolts to the anchor. I clipped a fixed pin immediately after gaining the arĂȘte, but unclipped it due to massive rope drag. The moves up to the next bolt are easy enough that the pin isn't necessary anyway. Beware of a large loose-looking block just up and right of the second bolt off the ground; stay left and all is well.
