Fun traversing climb through great knobs, crossing a few routes above a steeply overhanging face below. Not good for beginners, due to pendulum potential. A really fun way to get to the summit boulder problem. Make sure and boulder up and check out the summit register!

This was the first roped climb to top out on the Monolith and was done only with a few pitons(where?). It follows the path of least resistance up the east face.  It's ascent has been confused with the first ascent of the Direct Route.


Start at the Direct Route, and traverse right after it's first bolt, clip the anchor of Deck Chairs, then up and right to a bolt on Richnack's Revenge, to the final bolt on Monolith, Regular Route. Rap from chains with 50+m rope. tops out at Right side of summit boulder.


4 or 5 quickdraws, some shoulder length sling draws
