Monkey Island - Action Photos

Photographs of climbers in action on Monkey Island

Chimpanzee Climbers
Climbers on Chimpanzee (5.7+) in the late afternoon.  Note the stance where the climber in white is belaying should only be used with a 200' rope. A shorter rope will require belaying from a higher stance.
