There aren't many real moderate routes at Cathedral so perhaps after running endless laps on the classics you might want to do some new moderate moves. Maybe you are new to the Cathedral scene and want to drop a top rope and see how you can fair on North Conway granite but don't want to be seen. Practice Makes Perfect is a short, not too classic, route that can serve you both.

Climb up the tricky start in the crack and on the face to a pretty good rest. Next, pull through some good jams and on to a few more tricky moves to exit and gain the top.

Easy to top rope from the birch tree at the top.


Around the corner to the right from Play Misty (5.11c), look for a crack with a birch tree at the top right of a nasty corner.


Regular rack to a birch tree at the top
