Is slick rock only multi-pitch? I'm bringing some newbies and want to just do some single pitch climbing.

If there's bolted or tree anchors, you could always bail off the first pitch.
Though, I've gotta ask - why only single pitch? The fun starts a ropelength off the ground!

You can toprope the first pitch of the 5.8 with two ropes. You might be able to do it with a long rope, I can't remember when I rappelled the route after climbing it.

Not the best - Idea

1. The rest of the routes are trad / bolted affairs. So you would have leave gear or lead up 8 pitches.

2. You would be camping out on start of a climb. There will probably be no one there (being Idaho), but you should be willing to let others play through.

3. I think you would better off farther up, at the pillar as you would have at least more than one climb to do.
