Crag features

Monastir is a limestone cliff giving excellent steep climbing. It dries quickly and is very sheltered—so much that carnivorous midges are often a problem in summer.

Excellent steep climbing with abundant finger pockets. [David Blair]

Approach notes

In the Marlbank Scenic Loop, south-east of Blacklion/Belcoo.
Approaches: The Scenic Loop is sighposted from the Blacklion- Florencecourt road, and approximately halfway round the loop (6.5km) (at Cuilcagh mountain park crag is below) there is a small layby at the top of the crag. Reach the floor by descending a small path on the right of the layby, looking south. Climbs finish on the road.
