I am heading to Telluride next week and would like to find a nice hike/easy top roping options for the family. (easy = 5.0 to 5.5).  When looking at the Telluride area few options come up on this site and cracked canyon is probably not the safest for the little ones.  Any locals willing to share recommendations?

Thanks for the help!

If you're willing to drive to Ouray, the Rotary Wall has some really easy climbs. Since you can't hike to setup up the anchor, I just soloed the easy routes and setup a TR for my fiancé.

Second for the rotary wall.  Great place for kids and fun challenging climbs for the adults.  There are some new 5.10+ multi-pitch sport climbs as well.  

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
