Toproping Monstrosity.

Description 

This is probably the best 5.10 at The Palace. Follow a line a good holds through multiple roofs. No one move will throw you, but the pump might. This is a great line to run laps on, if no one is waiting in line.


Location 

The second route to the right of the mine shaft.


Protection 

9 bolts....

Pumpy 5.10 for sure!! The rock is pretty good and this is a fun route. Worth the trip across the Poudre.

Fun route. Straightforward and definitely easier than Strictly Business.

Would be graded harder if it did not have 2 no-hands rests.

Wonderful climbing, but 10b must be a traditional rating that people aren't willing to relinquish. Compared with the seven other routes we did at the Palace on this day, Monstrosity would be upper-end 5.10. The bottom is totally in your face. Nonetheless, a superb climb, I thought!
