Monitor Rock is a ranked peak in the Mt. Elbert quad at 10,556’ and is an excellent scramble at 5.4 yds following this track. Racing up The Nose is a good way to climb a lot of vertical feet quickly.

The track is designed for those who want to do laps but will be submitted as a one lap unsupported female FKT. There are two tiers on the climb where choosing the path of least resistance is the fastest line however there are many lines and crack systems to the summit and this is the fastest line.

Tag the summit and follow the cairns to the gully descent with the spiraling tree.
