After the Northeast Face (and Just Do It), here is the slightly more accessible West Face of the one and only Monkey Face pillar in Smith Rock. It features the ultra-classic West Face, which is unlikely to ever go free, a couple of (relatively) moderate lines, Astro Monkey and Monkey Farce, as well as other angles on the Backbone and the Northwest Corner. And views of several nearby areas that would be getting a lot more traffic with a shorter approach: Mesa Verde Wall, Pleasure Palace, Diamonds and Rust and Kiss of the Lepers.

Special thanks to Josh Janes for his invaluable help, once again!
