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.

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
