5 out of 5 stars gordy onsights second pitch of west face variation5.8Monkey Face

Way cool,fun climbing,with great gear placements.Then I jugged the free hanging rope to the mouth of the monkey,sweet!The coolest perspective.We finished the climb out of panic point,(the mouth)with the long traverse around the head,instead of just going straight up.This keeps you out ,fully exposed for longer ,which makes for a way more pleasurable experience. If you like exposure that is.Classic!
