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? May 30, 2007

Easy, fun route but I can't think of a better first lead for someone. Very bolted and safe. Jul 29, 2007

Fun 5.5 face climb with about 10 bolts, closely spaced, to a 2-bolt anchor with chains. Dan's first ever lead! Oct 25, 2008

Will a 60m rope for toproping/rappeling work? Or are 2 ropes needed? Jul 16, 2010

Basically ran up it barefoot, it was awesome. Sep 15, 2010
Slabby start, but eases a bit after the first 10 ft. Lots of bolts. 60m rope will do the trick. Jul 8, 2013

Agree with all the above. A TR would make for some fun learning opportunities for slab/smear/friction skills. Mar 23, 2015
