Really great route!

If you don't have four or five #2's, don't fret. I thought I had four 2's, but ended up only having three (then later realized the fourth is more like a 2.5 (had 2 BDs, a Totem, and the 2.5 is a DMM demon).

The first time I lead it I placed two 3's, two 2's, a 1, another 2, then 1 in the final moves out of the hand crack. Where I placed the 1 is about 2/3 the way up where you're still fully in the #2 territory, yet there's a slight constriction which is perfect for a #1. I was bumping a two up and getting stressed that I didn't have a fourth 2, then came upon the constriction; placed the #1, took out my third two, continued climbing, happily placed my last two, then into the exit moves (where it goes to #1 size). Worked out great!

Second time I lead it I had realized the DMM sizing so I did: two 3's, the 2.5, three 2's, and the 1. Also worked out great. Aug 31, 2017

2 #3's at the start. 4 #2's if you are comfy on that size, and a #1 for the top and you are as golden as the route. If not solid on 5.10 wide-hand/perfect-hand take an extra 1 and 2. Nov 12, 2014

5 #2's, 2 #3' a one and a .75. Total pumpfest! DO laps on toprope, oh so fun!
AND AS TO THE APPROACH!! If one is walking in on the road, and the second gate is not there (yesterday) one will miss the second cattle guard, and one will end up taking 1.75 hours to find the crag. As this one did. If you hit the first road cut (the road is cut through the hill, with hill on both sides and you lose sight of the river, this is the straightaway and the trail heads up here. It, the trail, is very well used; there is a park sign 100' up (why not at the junction?)

If you climb most of gold rush, step right to the horizontal on Alchemy, and finish via the alchemy corner and overhung arete, I can't imagine a better 5.10 trad pitch anywhere. I guess the local name is Pan Handling. Jan 5, 2012

If you drove to Trout Creek just for this route and left it would still be worth it. So good! Aug 3, 2009
