Monitor and Merrimac from the summit


This route climbs the cleft and crack on the north side of The Seminary. Its got some soft rock and even some moss. The summit cap is reached with some 5.7 slab moves that are protected with a piece here and there. You need two ropes to get back down to the hanging valley.


A couple 3.5's and #3, plus a few finger pieces. I got a 2.5 (all friends) in on the slab
