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