Woke up early to try and bet the crowds to the Monastrey made our way up the hill and took pictures of different Monasteries on our way up to the Holy Trinity Monastrey which we were able to have a look through.
Incredible how the Monks would climb the rock face to pick a place to build the Monastery then in the original time they would build it all by hand. It blends into the rock face and looks incredible. ...

This was the point where we could have turned around and made it slightly late to dinner, none the worse for some significant lacerations but without a swelling of accomplishment. I managed the climb first, after which there was ...
