This low fin of rock acts as a barrier to the Garden area. The available information claims 12 boulder problems and a 5.9 route on this formation, which may include problems on an adjacent (and continuous) formation.

Rock quality varies, and it is more than likely that the routes only climb those parts of the wall which seem more stable. A few nooks on this wall offer shady spots to boulder.

Getting There 

The Monks are one of the first formations encountered when approaching the The Garden.
