Fall For Anything starts off with a bang and ends with a thud. The opening moves offer up sporty jugs on steep rock that end all too soon, leaving you with having to make slower calculated moves up a slab reminiscent to that of the next door climb My Little Pony. You'll recognize the climb by the short vertical start that looks to be on poor quality rock. In reality, the rock ended up being much more solid than it appears.
Use good knobs up to the first bolt before bigger sidepulls and pockets appear. Use pockets and high feet to surmount the bulge before the slab begins with a slopey hold. Climb up the slow angle slab for a few more spaced out bolts that lead to anchor far out of view from your belayer. While the opening sequence is fun, it's too short lived to make up for the finish.

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.
