Only accessible by climbing a rock face by rope, up to the plateau. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Debre_Damo

Founded By Abune Aregawi (Zemichael) in the 6th century.

You really get around, Stan. I stumbled over your pic of the remains of the Italian Marble Arch in Libya and read the description in the Wikipedia article.
