Description

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.

Location

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

Protection

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