I own the game for a week now (yes, Europe) and managed to beat Menhir solo yesterday.
I've started out trying Altar in solo, failed, and read about Pairs being easier. After that I beat Altar within a few tries in Pairs on my own.
But Menhir was just too narrow for Pairs for me.
So I kept practising solo yesterday and the day before until - as I said - yesterday I finally conquered it.
First 40 steps shouldn't make any problems, after that - when it widens up a bit - try Inazuma and Inazuma variations and try not to crumble you wall to much. The less block you drop, the flatter your next starting surface will be and the easier this section of Menhir will be.
Actually you can say that overall: From step 40 on focus on
a) not crumbling your wall to much (or at least crumble it equally) and
b) don't forget about trap blocks.
I screwed up quite a few attempts because I was so focused on thinking about how to proceed further upwards that I forgot I was standing on a trap block!
