I usually lead this with just the bolts but you can place a tcu or small cam to lessen the run outs (Run outs are not bad). I love this climb a classic for the area, Climb it every time I'm up there.

Protection

7 bolts optional tcu or small cam. 2 bolt/chains and anchor wrap route.

[Hide Comment] Good climbing on this one but unfortunately the rock is pretty dirty. I placed one small finger sized cam towards the top and was glad I had it. Jun 25, 2014
