The farthest right route on the lower wall of the Pleasure Palace felt soft for a 5.9 at Smith. Some bigger holds pepper the climb and make it an enjoyable route. Beware of a few holds near the top that are loose, have your belayer wear a helmet. This is one of the longer climbs in the area.

Given Black Diamond’s reputation for strong and durable hard goods, we decided to give their 9.9mm rope a try as our go to gym rope. The rope is priced right and works great out of the box but early signs of wear in the gym make it hard to give it the nod as a preferred gym rope.
