Description 

This route, while described in Gillet's guidebook as being "uphill from The Basilica," is reached about 50 meters before arriving at The Basilica. Typical thin slabby moves bring one past 3 bolts to 2 anchors. It gets one star because of The Basilica, but I would not recommend it as a warm-up, as the moves seemed almost harder than those of it's neighboring climb.

Location 

Take your first left when entering The Monastery. Drop down, hop over a log, scuttle down a little rock, then start going up until you crest the hill on the left. Continue going past, and slightly left of, a boulder resting on a large rock platform. This starts the descent. Bring boots, a machete, and, maybe, yeah, a shovel. Good luck.

Protection 

3 bolts, 2 anchors, shin-guards.
