The 1st pitch to Tropicana is a fun, and very readable 11a. Any of the 11s at 5.8 crag are safe and fun(except Sky Pilot, which, depending on your comfort level, may require a a couple pieces of gear), and the extension to Waimea is fun, though short. Chris Duca

This probably depends on your strengths.

Are you better at boulder problems, or endurance?

Check out this list

I suggest All the Way-A it is an extension of Waimea and is worthwhile, and not a hard 5.11a

Also, I suggest the most frequent 1st 5.11 in all of Rumney: Three Easy Pieces it was my first, my wife's first and many others' firsts.

Additionally, you could take a look at Man With a Hueco in His Tights it is easy at 5.11b if you have bouldering strength and it is easy to work with a stick clip.

Hey thanks for the help, I feel i have more bouldering strength than endurance, but thats what I want to work on through the winter. I was think Three Easy Pieces because its short, and i will probably go for that and i will certainly check out Man With a Heuco in his Thighs...

Anymore ideas are welcome thanks for the help.
