Description

Morning Sun & Easy --> Challenging Routes

Lots of new development is going on at the Monument right now. Please make sure to wear your helmets, as rock fall is a big concern at this time!!

Getting There

Walk over the bridge, go right, stay along the river for less than 10 minutes of leisure hiking, turn left under a huge Ponderosa pine. You'll pass a couple other big Ponderosa's until you get to this one, but you'll know you're at the right one by the trail that leads up to the wall from it.

The Monument Base Area is a fairly clear area.
