Monster-growth from the Underbeast
| E5 6a|
<< Vladimir on the Rocks < Monsterosity | Monster Modello > The Monster Mash >>
The left arete of the Monster Face gives a big steep climb in an impressive position.
1) 5c, 15m. Gain the poor belay on 'Monsterosity', either from below or by abseil.
2) 6a, 40m. Traverse left to a big ledge on the arete. Climb the arete above using holds on the left to gain a flake on the right. Continue up the arete past a small ledge and a hidden jug on the left to arrive at a ledge and a junction with 'Monsterosity'. Finish as for this. Not in current guidebook.
FA. G.Gibson 24.5.87
This route relies on fixed gear. The third thread has nearly pulled through and the first peg is in a very poor state. Do not go on this route thinking it is E5! Very dangerous is current state June '09.
