    If you bring a #2 BD it is going to stay on your harness. The smallest piece you want is a #3 BD or 3.5 WC And you are going to need a few of them. I did place a #4 WC and and old 3.5 BD on this to. You are going to get afternoon sun on this route as well.

    Agree, all 3s with a 3.5 at the top; #2s won't fit. Great warmup route!

    I believe I plugged in 4 #3s 1 #2s and 1 #4. The number #2 protected midway up the crack for me where it obviously gets slightly thinner

    Crack is way to big for #2s. Mostly 3.5 camalots down low to #3s up top and plugged one #4 in the middle where it looks like its a jug about 10 feet after where the steep section ends

    Seems some confusion in this here MP route guide about this route vs The 5.10- corner.

    Three fools route location is around to the right out of view from the Dr Carl/wiggin worm area. It is in the vicinity of "Ernie used to box"
