Description

The original submission for this described Monastic Groove.

This is the climb just to the left of Monastic Groove on the Outer Gates side of the Vestry. It is currently the 2nd climb from the left (of 5 climbs) on this face. It climbs a slab with 6 bolts past an overlap. The crux is after the 4th bolt. It can be continued to the top of the Vestry by moving left to the finish of Abbot Arete, 5.7.

Protection

About 7-8 draws and something for the two bolt anchor.

In June 2014, Dale Haas and I replaced one of the hangers at the belay and added quicklinks and a ring for rappel. The American Safe Climbing Association - ASCA (www.safeclimbing.org) provided the hardware. They appreciate your support. Jan 19, 2015

Blow the cip on the third bolt and you're gonna hit your belayer. Fun otherwise. Jul 30, 2007

Regarding S.H., the 5.10 version :)Fun! It was interesting and moving through the bulge was a blast. You get a reputable section of .10a between the 4th and 5th bolts. The rest of the route is sustained .8 or so. Jun 19, 2003
