Marooned is a tricky son of a bitch that might just leave you more frustrated than anything. It shares an anchor with Walking While Intoxicated and offers up a good top rope opportunity for non-11+ climbers.
Start up into a large concave section of the lower wall. The first few holds are jugs but after the first bolt you'll be using thin holds and feet to set yourself up for a two-finger pocket. The next sequence between the 2nd and 3rd bolt is hard and required solid strength on small holds and good footwork to pull off. Once beyond the crux, the climbing gets easier on bigger holds and more straightforward climbing. Not the most fun climb in the world but a good top rope exercise after climbing Walking While Intoxicated.

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.
