The Tutorial is a new line on the Monument Base Area. Start just left of the zig-zagging roof above. The line moves up straight the left of the roof and then works right to left in the leftward trending dihedral. The most fun move and crux of the move comes before you enter the dihedral. Once in the dehidral the climbing becomes more awkward and less fun as face climbing turns into more stemming and palm-shimmy climbing.
There are still lots of little pebbles on the route that will likely kick down on the belay area. Where a helmet and look out for loose rock.

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
