Description

Located on the east side of the Catacomb, across from Gravestone and Mausoleum. You will find two bolted lines with red hangers uphill from a crack with fixed nuts (Crack a Smile 12a). The left line is spider line (11b also needs supplemental gear), the right is Contortionist's Forte. Tossing in a nut just off the deck will provide security in reaching the first clip. A few crimps and fingerlocks will deposit you below the scoop at the 3rd bolt. The crux falls to contortions into the scoop. A unique route. Very unlike any other route at the Monastery. The climbing above the crux is still very thought provoking and stemming oriented. Don't expect a pulling fest.

Protection

Medium nut placement before the first bolt, 5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.
