The Monkey Traverse at Flagstaff Mountain

by Tom Markiewicz on February 6, 2009

Since I’ve been unable to climb the past couple weeks while rehabbing my flexor tendonitis, I’ve been trying to use my camera more. Yesterday, while touring my visiting parents around Boulder, I caught some nice images of some climbers at the Monkey Traverse area of Flagstaff.

The following shots are from a pull-off above the main bouldering areas. They show the highly trafficked Monkey Traverse and someone top-roping a climb on the face to the right and down the hill from Monkey.

I was particularly pleased with the last two images as the setting sun was just right for the shot, nicely lighting up the climber on the face.

    Howdy, I do think your website could be having browser compatibility problems. Whenever I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, wonderful blog!
