Comments: Stellar route, had a blast on it this afternoon!

A couple notes:
Easily rappels with one 60m rope, though getting to the anchor on pitch 2 is a little frightening as you have to swing into it, backing up your rappel is a great idea.
Offsets protect the crux move on P1 quite well, thanks to the OP for the suggestion!
For gear I would say that doubles from .3-5" is sufficient, especially if you have a set of offset cams for P1. A #6 is optional, but can be placed. The top of P3 begs for a #3, ... more >>

Comments: Beautiful second pitch, less aesthetic first pitch, but some fun moves. Not much of a trail to the base of this route, but the route itself is clear of loose rock.

I'd suggest a minimum of 4 #2s and 4 #3s for this route. It is a 100+ foot pitch and you'll place the #4 early on (a #5 is optional and a 2nd #4 wouldn't hurt if you are thin in the 2-3" cam size).

Comments: Went to the second set of anchors yesterday, very cool offwidth climbing and much longer than it looked from the ground.

Gear wise the guide book I had and the information here seems a bit misleading. I brought up three BD#3, three BD#4, and one BD#5. The #3s were useless for the majority of the route. I placed one right off the bat and then it was #4 and #5 the whole way up. Shuffled lots of cams up. If I was to do it again four or five #4s would be useful, as would a second or third #5... more >>
