Rapple Grapple is a 5.8 climb that shares some of the Beckey Route. I am posting mid-week, hoping that it is not very crowded.

If you are interested in this climb, please send me an email detailing any recent experience leading 5.8 multi-pitch trad. This is not an ideal climb for new trad leaders.

Given that it is a mid-week climb in Washington Pass, it may have to be cancelled or become a private trip if not enough people show interest.
