This route lies below Harley Davidson and is a good first sport climb, lead, or kids climb. It is on the left side of the gully / horizontal passage where Harley Davidson starts on the right. There are several different lines you can take for the first two bolts to make it harder(left) or easier (right).


4 bolts to the anchors.

This is a quality climb for a beginning climber, it was my first climb and it was perfect for the scare factor, and it wasn't too tall.

A great route to take the kids up after they have been patient and let the adults climb for a while.

Time for a new anchor. Studs wiggle in the hole.

This was an incredibly easy route; however it, like the rest of the Monastery is underrated and not in line with anything else in the Canyon or the rest of the state for that matter. I'd call this one a 5.4 if I were comparing it to other climbs in CCC, Boulder Canyon, etc.

Confirmed both studs wiggle and the left nut is only finger tight.
