Monkey Trial is a fun mixed line that shares the start of Hollow Be Thy Name. Start with 2 well-spaced bolts (gear) and then branch out right past two pins and a bolt. Angle left past the final pin (crux) and follow thin crack systems to the top (gear). You can clip a nearby bolt on an adjacent route near the top.


The start is shared with Hollow Be Thy Name, which is the second bolted line to the left of Upside the Cranium.


Cams to #1 and nuts, emphasis on the small stuff.

After the 10c crux on this climb, it was natural to continue back to Hollow BTName, the crux on that was simple compared to the crux on this climb, wow nice!!
