4 out of 5 stars FA

John and I set out to put together 3 extensions to Unfinished Monkey Business by traversing the obvious natural features 5 feet below the top of the crag. It was just dumb luck that 4 climbs shared such a natural placement of final bolts across the wall and linked up so extremely well.

We knocked out the first 2 extensions and dubbed them Monkey Grind, Monkey Grinder and of course Monkey Grindest to round out the naming scheme. We bagged the first 2 right away, but it took me quite some time and attempts to bag the last one.
