A fun line that offers up easier climbing in the Shipwreck Wall area with the rating coming from a few moves through the crux. Hike up near the top of the east facing Shipwreck Wall and look for a route that shares an anchor with another bolted line to it's left (Marooned).
Start out with easy moves and jugs through the first two bolts. The crux comes using pockets, huecos, and balance to get through the third clip before using a little strength to pull through a steep section. After that the climbing eases up by moving through more pockets with good feet and holds. Two seemlingly man-made pockets after the crux stand out on this climb just due to their similarity in shape and size while being right next to each other. All in all a good route worth doing.

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.
