Chalk Therapy is located in between Wherever I May Roam and Cod Rock and just uphill from Chalk Wave. Be careful where you tread, the trail heading up to Chalk Therapy is fragile.
While rated 5.10b, there is only a short section of business to maneuver through, the rest of the climb is straightforward on big holds. Start by pulling through on large holds up to flat section beneath what look like caked-mud pockets where you'll be standing on some dirt. I wouldn't recommend cranking on the mud looking pockets. Move onto the face over the small arete and use crimps to work through the crux sequence. From there big holds and easy climbing lead up to a two-bolted anchor.

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.
