As a bit of history, the first known ascent of the Monolith was made on February 17, 1935 by David & Ralph Brower, Bill Van Vorrhis and George Rockwood. The enterprising group climbed the big oak tree which overhangs the northern end of the east face and stepped across onto the rock near the top of the first pitch of the Regular Route. They scampered to the summit from there and apparently downclimbed the tree on their way back down.
