while on my last trip to DL, i vaguely looked for the monolith problems, but did not find them on the trail up to the east bluffs. was it by the gastly john gill problem; the small seam with a few crimpers? Sep 23, 2005

You need to hike up the east bluff trail starting from the North Shore. It appears you started at the CCC lot on the south end. Sep 23, 2005
