Description [Suggest Change]
This route ascends an arete on sharp conglomerate. Make use of the dihedral to your right, or stay left of the arete for a harder ascent. The guidebook lists this route as 5.9-, but I respectfully submit that this route is at least 5.9+, as there are some committing moves with fewer options than most 5.9s I've climbed. As with most Monastery routes, there is a significant runout between the last bolt and the anchors, which are shared with the 5.11 route to the left. A short and dirty climb, I was tempted to give this route a bomb. Props to Chris Deulen for leading this route (and TR'ing the 11 next door) in the dark.
Location [Suggest Change]
As you head left off the main path to the Monastery, look to your left. This route is the one in the middle that climbs the obvious arete.
Protection [Suggest Change]
3 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor, which lies above the 5.11 route to the left. You might want to bring a t-shirt or some slings to combat the rope drag on sharp rock at the top.
