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.


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

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.

...Southern Comfort is to the left and is a solid 10a face climb with no crack or jug roof.

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

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 ( provided the hardware. They appreciate your support.
