Looking toward the Monument Area from the Lower Go...
The Monument area is a lesser-visited part of Smith with a lot of adventurous routes (read: chossy) obscuring a few true gems tucked away in the towers. It's worth noting that even the gems are typically of a more adventurous nature than your average route. The area is comprised of the Cajun Cliff, Victoria Tower, London Tower, Big Ben, Little Three Fingered Jack, Puddy's Tower, The Monument, Liberty Bell, and Juniper Spire.
