Climbed what we were told is a new route at The Monument Base area on Sunday. Just wondering if it has a name yet? It's on the climbers right end of the wall, the upper half is a chimney.
We were told we were likely the 5th and 6th ascents. It was really fun climbing, still a bit dirty and crumbly but should clean up okay. Kudos to whoever put it up.  I'd give it a 10- or 9+.

The route is named The Tutorial (5.10a) developed and established by Sarah Regan.. expect to see more cool 5.10s on the right side of the Monument!

Thanks Chris! Looking forward to seeing more. It looks like there's lots of room for development there.
