Joell headed for the third bolt.


Right of Going to the Chapel and left of Simplexity. Clip 6 bolts and share the Simplexity anchor. Crux at the second or third bolt. After bolt 4, the route angles to the right. Single rope lower off.


6 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

Typical Monastery 5.7, although not as sustained as some. The crux is basically a couple of moves in the middle of the climb.

Altered Boy is a straight forward 5.7. It will be a nice warm-up climb for the other routes on the Chapel. It would also be a good route for a new sport leader.
