Description:

Buttress to face. Good route. Loss of some holds on the start make this one harder than it used to be. If it seems harder than an .8 it's not because you're having an off day. Don't fall on the first half: you will likely smack the pillar in the gully. NOTE: Squeezing the Lemmon II has this route in the wrong place. It is actually just right of route #12. If you don't like the bolt spacing take some small pro (<1) and medium stoppers (5-7).

Worth the six hour wait while the brave led this run out climb.

3 out of 5 stars ~

sketchy bolt spacing, but nice climb. from the following description (http://www.climbaz.com/climbs/greenslabs/green_slabs.html#Yurt%20Monkey) you can see that you are essentially unprotected until the 3rd bolt (~30 feet) if you rely solely on bolts.
