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

This is 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. Apr 4, 2007

Would be graded harder if it did not have 2 no-hands rests. May 12, 2010

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! Oct 31, 2010

BE CAREFUL!!!!!
I was climbing here two weeks ago and a large, basketball-sized hold came right off the wall and fell thirty feet to the ground. It might feel solid, but this route is well travelled and gets loosened over time.
I'd wear a helmet belaying here, or back up away from the base of the route. Oct 23, 2014

Fun route. I would have to give it a 5.10b though. The climbing is not too difficult after the third bolt, but the pump is pretty full on after that. Mar 22, 2016
