Description

Group Therapy is a new sport route that goes up the left side of the Dan's Line slab. It is well bolted, and a good route for a new sport leader.

Start as for Dan's Line, at a flat boulder. Scramble up a left-angling groove to a good ledge above a little pine tree. The first bolt is about 10' above the tree. Climb straight up the face on good edges. At the fifth bolt, step right and climb up to a big ledge, avoiding the dark fractured rock on the left. Continue up the slab, staying on the face as much as possible, avoiding the corner on the left. Surmount a small bulge, and continue to the anchor.

Location

Same as for Dan's Line, at a flat boulder.

Protection

10 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks. Be careful if you lower; some 60m ropes come up a little bit short -- tie a knot in the end of the rope.

Climbed this line this afternoon.

Fun moves, no surprises. All hardwear seemed fine.

5.8- seems right, though I tend to the sandbagger side of things.... Apr 25, 2016

I didn't notice any loose rocks along the way. Everything I used in the black band seemed solid enough.

This climb would be a good first lead for a timid climber - tons of bolts! Nov 10, 2014

Nice line, pretty easy for the grade. 60m rope just long enough. Tie a knot on the end of the rope.

A fun route that goes pretty easy until the bulge. Not as sustained at its grade than the other moderates in the area.

Of course, be mindful of your rope! We used a 70m, and it was looking a little thin after both ends were on the ground.... Sep 5, 2010

There is ANOTHER easy way to avoid rappelling-off-the-end-of-your-damn-rope accidents.

Pay. Attention.

Use your head and you don't need to use knots. Apr 3, 2010

Easiest way to avoid this, always tie into/tie a knot in the end of your rope! Nov 10, 2009

Karl,
Who told you it was a 60m rope? Did you verify that?
Who told you that someone nearly died? Nobody is nearly dead.

Yes, one needs to be attendant to rope length, but let's not sensationalize things. Aug 20, 2009

!!!!!!!!!There was a serious accident here on 8/19/09 because 60 m rope was not long enough and end went through belay device lowering the leader. Climber fell about 40 ft below belay and nearly died. Please use caution and tell others to belay from ridge directly below 1st bolt or be prepared to lower to ridge and scramble down. A knot in the end of the rope is an easy way to save a life. Aug 20, 2009

Note: lowering a second climber on 60m rope back to the start of the route will be very close to the end at the finish...actual footage of rope's stated lengths do vary! Jul 5, 2009
