3 out of 5 stars Highball

Short and powerful, only 3 bolts but stout for an 11a. Excellent warm up if you're chasing any of the harder climbs in that area!

3 out of 5 stars Blowing Smoke at the Monkey

Bit more of a bouldery crux than the other 11a's in the area.

4 out of 5 stars .

This should have went down long ago. Keep going once you hit the anchors for a better hold.

3 out of 5 stars On you...

This climb is a good milestone climb to get. There is only one real opportunity to get a rest just before making the final crux moves.

4 out of 5 stars Great climb...

Efficient maneuvering of the bulge is a must to prepare yourself for the redpoint crux at the top. Clipping the anchors can be tough if you're pumped.

4 out of 5 stars Smokin' Monkey..

Every clip is right handed, so just put your draws on your right. no need for more than one lefty. (Possible safety or or top anchor.) Can climb past the left hand two-finger pocket at the top to a matching right hand. Bring your feet up for a jug-top-out clip stance. This is always in my circuit, definately a Reimer's must.

5 out of 5 stars Obvious

Feels a little soft for 11a, all the moves are pretty obvious due to the chalk that's been collecting on all the holds for years and the weight stays on your feet for most of the climb so you're not fighting a pump while trying to figure out the climb like you would be on some other 11a's in this area.
