Comments: This little triangle ledge about 15' off to the right of the rappel line is where we found the intermediate rappel anchors.

Comments: I really enjoyed this route. I climbed it a few days ago with Sherri^.

I led P1 & 3, Sherri let P2 & 4. We climbed on twin 60m ropes, had a set of wires and cams to 2". We also had some micros with us but they never got placed, not even on the 4th pitch.

P1 was really nice straightforward climbing. I got up to the roof, clipped the bolt, had a look at the holds that were there... looked for holds that weren't there... looked at my feet... and make the move, It's not a tough move, it's j... more >>

Comments: I climbed this route yesterday with Larry DeAngelo. I led P 1,2,4,5,7 (5.8 variation). Weather was in the high 70s with a 30mph gusting to 50 winds from the Southwest. Angel Food Wall faces NE. The howling winds we encountered in the parking lot were non-existent once we were on the rock. It was mostly calm for us, with a raren strong breeze.

On this wall I've also climbed Tunnel Vision and Purblind Pillar. They're all great routes but Group Therapy is my favorite out of the bunch so far.... more >>

Comments: This is a fun route.

3 stars for the view from the top, the fun factor, and the novelty of the hallway area.

I felt if was a touch more difficult than many of the other 5.7's I've led at RRG so I gave it a "+".

Good pro.

Comments: The step across is not only an R, but it's a total headgame. Before you make the move you can't really see how the "step across" is going to go.

Comments: This is a tough route but I managed to climb it on a few occasions. The slippery feet on the first tough move is what makes this so difficult. Damn it was hard to keep those feet on the wall! I'm not quite ready to lead this...it was enough of a challenge on toprope.

Comments: This is a great lead and will take lots of pro. I really enjoyed this route a lot. The guidebook description is right on the money. Every time you hit the "crux" it is followed up by another one LOL. Stick with the natural line up the corner crack and you'll have a very enjoyable climb.
