Further up the canyon, this is the small conglomerate tower about 50m below the wall with routes coming out of the cave marked by a prominent sandstone band.

This rock is not nearly as good as elsewhere, but a unique tower top. The route ascends the shortest line (north) up the tower. The rappel anchors descend the longest and steepest (south) side of the tower.

Pitch #1: Climb dirty loose cobbles past 3 bolts to an "au cheval" move to the crumbly ridgeline. Pass another bolt to the two-bolt belay. 5.8, 12m.


Walk up the hillside for about 100m to the Monk which stands by itself on the hillside half way to the cave routes.


QDs for 4 or 5 bolts. Rappel to the other side descending.
