Reservoir Ridge is a great place to take the new climber to teach them everything they need to know. There are some Chains on War Clamor that are 15 feet off the ground where you can teach a new climber how to clean and rap while being able to watch and instruct with out having to yell. Allso some good routes to in storm to take a new sport leader.

I know this will be redundant information to most everyone, but in the last year or so I've heard of three people making this huge error, one of which I was present for last weekend.
Many of these climbs will require a 70m rope! Please, use caution, and if you find yourself in such a pickle; don't be too proud to leave gear behind to ensure a safe rap off the wall. Also, always knot your belay's end of the rope.
My wishes for a speedy, uncomplicated recovery to the gal last weekend.
