Description

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.

Location

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.

Protection

Regular rack to a birch tree at the top

This is actually a nice little route. Worth doing if you top out on Thin Air and want just a little bit more. Used to guide this all the time. Jul 28, 2017
