Monument is another summit that remarkably escaped the "52-Peak Club" list. There are several approaches that are not on the scenic loop, so you are not restricted to limited hours. Because there is a western, cooler access, this is often a shoulder-season peak. The best time to visit is after a rainy winter-(early) spring, when the tanks on top are full. You will probably want to visit Hidden too, since it is unclear which is really the highest peaklet. Link to trip report for Monument Peak in southern Red Rock CNCA
