This was the AMC Grad Climb for 5 new students: Todd, Tom, Cheryl, Helmi and Brian. It was my first time on Sven Tower III and I really loved it. This tower has a short 15 minute approach so that is always nice. I believe there are 3 partially bolted routes on this Tower so the routes are mixed. We set up 2 of the routes (5.7 and 5.6), one of them being 3 pitches. I think we had 6 ropes and 2 full racks of pro with us. It was a big project logistically to move 12 people up and down the routes. The weather was perfect and the climb was pure fun.
