Description 

The Monolith area is a great place to boulder.

Getting There 

To get to the Monolith Area from the North Shore, start off on the East Bluff Trail and hike about 1/2 mile. There will be a slight dip in the trail. The Monolith problems will be on either side of the trail at this point.

Sex & Chocolate ascends  using the arete and crimp...

Sex & Chocolate V7 7A+  WI : Devil's Lake : ... : Monolith Rocks
Start right hand on a the crimp on the face, left hand on the good hold on the arete. Move onto the arete and make a long move to the slopey jug. Exit left or right from here, or continue to the top for the direct finish if you're into that sort of thing. This is the style of problem where there is a fine line between it feeling impossible and impossibly easy...With the completion of the direct finish, this is listed as a separate problem more for historical purposes than anything else......[more]   Browse More Classics in WI

The face just left of Perfect Medium has two thin seams running up it. Has anyone ever climbed it?

Hey Remo, it has been done. I keep thinking it goes somewhere in the V1-3 range. I think it's named Manhattan or something like that. I've got a copy of Git On It if you want to photo copy it.

Steve, Thanks man, I would love a copy of that. I've been trying to get it for years.
Your not talking about using the large crack in the corner are you? Yeah that's easy. The two seams in the middle are super thin, and it seams really hard, but maybe I'm just missing something.

Yeah Remo, I think it goes at V-easy using that big right hand crack. I've never tried it just using the two seams. I'll try to see what Eric said in the guide and i'll photo copy one for you.

Funny little guide.
