Getting off the ground was fairly burly. We placed a a bomber #5 camalot here, but you could probably get away with a #4 a bit higher. Once I gained the ledge on top the boulder, I had my belayer pull the #5 to reduce rope drag.

Moves off the ground and topping out were both cruxes in my opinion. Bring triples of .5 and save one for the topout. Make sure to place a upward pull piece if your belayer belays right of the boulder so your pieces don't zipper.

Gear for anchor up top requires larger gear (2" - 4"). I used (2) #3's and a #2.

Gear beta: (1) 4 or 5 for the bottom section, (3) .5's, doubles of .75 - 3 Dec 10, 2015
