Bring your big gear


A fun thrash. I led this one with one #5 camalot and a set of old Chouinard tube chocks. Modern wide gear would be more expensive and shiny, not to mention probably more likely to get kicked out of place as you dolphin past it.


A little downhill past The The.


Biggest cams you got and jeans with the ankles taped to your socks.

I protected this just fine with a new 5 camalot, 4 camalot, 2 camalot, and an old 3.5 camalot. Belay off the two bolt anchor at the top of The The, and be careful getting your rope stuck in the finger crack if you decide to TR it.

#4-6 (even doubles) will make this safer to protect, unless your OW technique is dialed in.
