3 out of 5 stars Brass monkey, that funky monkey.

Good name for this route. Climbs better than the song by the same name. Enjoy placing small RPs? #2 RP or so is critical about 25 feet above bolt in a micro letterbox. Can finish 10 feet right of the shallow corner at the top if desire an easier finish on more solid rock. Was rated 10a X in old guide book - Might be more accurate.
