Description 

Monarch is to right on the short grassy bench. Named for the cloud of migrating monarch butterflies riding the spring winds south to north along the canyon rim.

Upstream of I Came As A Rat.


Location 

Upper tier upstream. Be careful of climbers on lower tier routes, any rocks rolled could go off the lip below.

Monarch butterflies migrate back north from Mexico each spring. I know exactly what happens to the dotted line of monarchs. They fly along the rim with the winds in spring.
