Comments: It's pretty good. Everything is a little loose and fragile in these sandstone parts but we looked at the formation on the left and it definitely looked worth exploring. Pretty low angle overall so would probably make for a nice 5.7 or 5.8 I'd say.

Comments: Interesting debate over the name of this place. I climbed a fair amount of the easy stuff here in December 2008 with friends just weeks after the Tea Fire swept through and you could walk straight through the barren ash remains to the boulders. Without knowing any previous history, I called it "The Monastery" in honour of Mount Calvary Monastery above, which burned to the ground in that fire. To me (and my peers), that name still holds the truest sense of the feeling I get when climbing there..... more >>

Comments: Haha, nice. I've changed the name as well now. Have any of you scoped CamelBak Crack? That's the true gem higher up and a good easy/moderate route.

Comments: Makes sense, Richard. Thanks for clarifying. We didn't see any sign of foot traffic and assumed it was an untraveled path, particularly the last moves up the summit block on top seemed untraveled. No worries though, I've changed the FA info now.

Comments: Nice work, Andy! I just saw the new trail developments for the first time the other day, and could see it must have taken a lot of effort. Thanks for bringing access to this sweet boulder field in the SB foothills.

Comments: Stand start goes at around V3. Super fun climb! I first climbed it in December 2009 right after the fire cleared out the hillside. Who knows if someone had done it before... I always called it "The Whole Trifecta".
