Description

Similar in layout to the Elephant Rocks area, but a little further South. In addition to the Monolith Blocks proper, there are a number of good climbs scattered on various rocks near here.

Getting There

In between Tomahawk and the Monolith bouldering area is an overlook with a mini amphitheater below. In the middle of the amphitheater is the Monolith.

Sadly, the Monolith overlook seems to be THE most popular place for hikers to dump trash down the crevices in the rock.

If hikers want to trash hiking areas, that is their business. But when hikers trash climbing areas, that becomes our business. Right now (2012), the climbing areas are generally the cleanest user areas in the Park. Help keep it that way, and bring along a trash bag when you visit the Monolith Blocks and other areas.
