5.9, Sport, 60 ft,  Avg: 2 from 11 votes
FA: Bruce Hildenbrand and Dale Haas, 2016
Colorado > Estes Park Valley > Big Thompson Ca… > Monastery > Vestibule


Climb past two bolts on the right side of the arete before making a delicate traverse around to the left side of the arete (crux). At the third bolt, climb back onto the right side of the arete, and follow that to the top.

The route is named in honor of Evan Jager who won a silver medal in the 3000m steeplechase at the 2016 Rio Olympics.


This route is located at the bottom of the Vestibule about 200 feet downhill and on the same side of the corridor as Tabular Rasa.

Coming from the Outer Gates through the Hallowed Hall or the Inner Sanctum, this route might be mistaken for The Hot Zone which is still up the trail about 200 feet to the north.


Five bolts to a two bolt anchor with links and rings (all SS hardware).
