Top rap anchors have been replaced. Take some cord for the rest of the raps. Not sure if the last pitch could be rapped with a 70m..
To find it. Park near the stables (was told we can't park at the stables) and hike to the buttress. Once you get to the toe, head up and left just a bit and then cut back right and scramble up to the dirty first pitch.
On the confusing 4th pitch, it's obvious off the belay but it gets... confusing.
No need for 6 x #1's and whatever else the guide recommends. Doubles to #2 is fine. 1 extra .75 and #1 will be nice though. Singles to #6 was nice but not totally necessary. Placed them mostly because I had 'em. If anything, bring a 6 for the 3rd pitch.
Good route, but a little chossy down low. Crux pitch is awesome. First half of it reminded me of New Dimensions. Then it turns into a beautiful fingers/off-fingers splitter. Last pitch is cherry on top, sweetness.
