who's got info for me for Moby Grape on Cannon. I know it's an 8 pitch or so 5.8. I also know to take the first pitch variation Reppy Crack. What is the rest of the route like? Any particularly loose areas or runout areas I should watch out for? I also believe that every pitch is 5.8, or am I wrong on this? Thanx

Sick route. I did it last year and found it to be an easy 5.8. The granite is so positive you can hang out on smears and nubs all day. We didn't encounter any runout or loose areas at all. You can combine some pitches to cut down on the number of pitches. Also, you can simul climb a few of the sections without much trouble. The Chauvin guides site mentioned above gives you all of the info you need and more!

I can't wait to go back up myself.
