I just lead the first pitch and was happy to find a two bolt anchor with chains, making it easy to rap off of P1. May 3, 2016
PG13 or worse without a 6" cam. Without at least a 5" cam, R or X. And I would rate that section 5.8.

If you do have a #6, the route is fun and well protected (maybe even without the #5). A #4 adds comfort at the top, though the climbing is easy there. Feb 21, 2016

It could be done in one pitch if pro is extended properly, however we did it in two. P2 is wide and a #6 Camalot or Big Bro would be helpful, but not required. I made it work with #4 and #5 Camalots. Nov 20, 2010
