Dave Groth on Vertigo. 2002.

Description 

Start on one of 3 options, 2 bolted lines 5.11 or go downhill and do the chimney and traverse easy terrain to belay. This what you came for. Start off the belay and work right and place some big gear under the roof, pull the roof and clip some bolts and thread an old rurp with small wires. After the rurp, head out left along a seam which brings you to pins. From the pins, head up to a set of bolts and fiddle in lots of gear. After a pin is clipped move up a bit higher and place a high piece. This high piece is good. Move left (crux). After this final traverse is done; it's easy sailin to the top. As for the top out, work around and left at the top.

Protection 

Bare bones
Nuts=full set small to large.
Cams=gray met, purple met, full set of Aliens, #1-4 Camalot. Lots of long slings and double ropes are useful.
