Annika finishing up Counter Strike.

Description 

This is a very mellow, bolted line left of the Moby Grape dihedral. It is very fun for the kids and popular with novices and fledgling leaders. If I were going to take my Mom climbing, this would be a fine choice!


Location 

This is a bolted line 10 meters right of unnamed 5.9 and 10 meters left of the Moby Grape dihedral. It is easy for mom and dad to setup a TR for the kids. There is a burly 50 foot approach!

Bryan did this one as well 20 something years ago minus the bolts. He even named it "Chris's Dream" maybe?

Easy, fun route but I can't think of a better first lead for someone. Very bolted and safe.

Fun 5.5 face climb with about 10 bolts, closely spaced, to a 2-bolt anchor with chains. Dan's first ever lead!

Will a 60m rope for toproping/rappeling work? Or are 2 ropes needed?

Basically ran up it barefoot, it was awesome.

Slabby start, but eases a bit after the first 10 ft. Lots of bolts. 60m rope will do the trick.
