Description

Top It Off starts off with a 5.9 crux that is thinner and steeper than anything on Red Eye Express (although similar in nature). Midway through the route, there are some great cracks. A small bulge must be reckoned with to reach the belay. More easy pockets and edges on a low incline lead above the belay anchors to a rightward arching lip. A lieback crux guards the top. A rightward shuffle leads to the anchor. I wouldn't be surprised if most people skip the top 40 feet or so and just do the first pitch.

Location

Top It Off is the second bolt line from the left. Rappel from the top anchors to the belay anchors for Red Eye Express and make a second rappel unless you have two ropes for a two rope rappel or a 70 meter rope.

Protection

13 black bolts (if leading in one long pitch) or 8 QDs for the first and 4 QDs for the second. A 2 chain belay station (anchors for Red Eye Express) facilitate a rappel for those with shorter ropes. A single rappel with a 70 meter rope is possible from the 2 chain anchor at the top; otherwise, a two rope rappel from the top would suffice.
