Description 

Most of the moderate climbing at The Monastery occurs at The Tower of Evolution. The climbing on The Tower of Evolution occurs either just off the trail (5.10s) or along the right flank of the formation (some nice 5.11) and as such gets less sun than most other crags. You can descend along the right flank to pick up a long, elegant bolted 5.8 arete and a slabby 5.9 just below it.


Getting There 

Stay on the main trail passing The Guardian and after a short way, you will encounter a large, blocky formation, The Tower of Evolution.

On the right side of The Tower and just a short way off the trail are a pair of near vertical routes, nearly identical in character. Punctuated Equilibrium is the right of the two and fires vectorially on continuous crimping. Excellent stone, rational pro, high continuity add up to a good warm-up, if you can call it that in December....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
