Description Suggest change

One of the first routes encountered at the Monastery, this easy route is right on the main trail and can be added to the day's tally without hardship; a solid star just for the view of climbers on Tabula Rasa below with Long's Peak as a backdrop.

As you approach the Monastery from the main trail you will pass the Guardian, a pair of obvious, steep bolts routes on your left, and then enter the Vestibule proper where the rock walls narrow and the slope drops away. The Altar (Tabula Rasa) comes into view as you descend - begin to look for the Tilted Tower. On the right, a section of the wall will form a wide pillar (the Tilted Tower) that appears to lean back up the hill. The Tilted Tower route follows the left arete of this pillar.

Climb 20' of easy rock along a well featured arete to the first bolt, then follow buckets past three more bolts. The "crux" is above the fourth bolt.

4 QDs and something for the two cold shuts.
