This goes straight up the face left of Monstrosity. Continuous crimps without much of a rest eventually lead to a good jug around the 6th bolt or so. From here, you traverse up and left to the anchors, with a few more hard moves. From my understanding, holds on Monstrosity are on as long as you don't traverse over for a no hands rest.
This is the second climb to the left on the Mineshaft Wall.
Bolts and closed ring anchors.

Does anybody know which holds you can and can't use from the climb Monstrosity? Can you start on Monstrosity or use the crimps to the left? This is a good climb, but I hate feeling like I'm in a gym and worrying if certain holds are off!

I've never been to this crag, but looking at the pic for Mostrosity, I would say that these lines are horribly squeezed. Without colored tape, I don't know how anyone could know which holds are on.

From my understanding, the climb starts with a right hand on the arete where Monstrosity starts. You then climb up and left to the first bolt. From this point on, if you follow the bolts and crimps, you shouldn't feel any desire to reach way over to Monstrosity. These two lines are close, but they are entirely independent lines (aside from the first hold). I found them to be the best two climbs in the area, so worth the few extra bolts. Enjoy.
Edit: I did the direct start the other day and it's totally reasonable and more in vogue with the rest of the climb than starting to the right.

If you've never been to the crag, how are you qualified to comment on any of it?

I think Greg's sarcasm radar isn't working... he's such a loser.
