Description

Monastery is a varied area with excellent sport and trad climbing, and angles ranging from slabby to severely overhanging. The far left of the crag is a steep wall with some difficult sport lines. As you head to the right, there is a mix of more moderate and slab/vert sport and trad lines. The far right of the crag is another steep wall with hard bolted routes.

Getting There

From the main parking area, take the bridge across the stream and pass a couple of roads on the left. Eventually there will be a washed out area on the right, with a wooden bridge around to the right that crosses back across the stream. Walk straight for a little bit until you reach a wooden sign listing the direction for Monastery, among other walls. Continue straight and head uphill and to your left up to the middle of the wall.
