Someone destroyed your trango at the top its basically fixed gear at this point. There is also another older cam a 1/3 of the way up. Its a decient climb. fun stemming. there may be poison ivy halfway up im not positive but beware. I agree not a great route to TR unless you extend over the lip. Oct 1, 2016

Be careful with your cams!! They will get eaten!

I have a Trango Flex cam (#3 I think) stuck in the crack just below the anchors. Will give a reward if you happen to be able to get it out. Mar 28, 2016

This is a WAY better lead than a TR. The anchors make TR a bit draggy. Quite fun on lead though. Mar 27, 2014

About halfway up, the crack flares inward...almost ate one of my cams. Stoppers are recommended there. There are a number of bomber passive pro placements. Take a handful of larger stoppers. Dec 3, 2012

Very nice route that protects exceptionally well. It did eat a cam of one of the climbers in the party before me, FYI. Oct 15, 2009
