Check for current Raptor closure conditions at:
If you're comfortable on 10- sport, you can bring fewer draws and skip bolts since they are so close together, but make sure you save a couple draws for the last two bolts as they get more spaced up at the top, and it's a bit ledgy.
Tribute starts off the ledge above Salty Dog, Crimson King, and Gunswinger. Belay at the left side of the ledge (the anchor for Salty Dog). The book erroneously says go right from the top of Crimson King, but this is definitely wrong.
p1: From the top of Salty Dog, head LEFT up easy terrain and clip a hidden bolt, then pull the steep bulge past a couple more bolts to an anchor at a stance. Pumpy 10c. Short. Maybe 40'
p2: Climb a FULL 35m pitch to the top of the tower. Lots of jugs and edges, and you grab the sharp fin/arete here and there. 10a. Cool pitch. The anchors on top are kinda strange - crazy long chains.
Rapping the route can be a bit tricky. Instead it's best to do:
1) a short 40' rap from the top of the tower down to a nice anchor that's the top of the sport climb to the left of Tribute.
2) From there do a 33m rap to the big ledge.
3) Walk back to a tree and find the rap station to rap down the easy slab to the ground (25m).
