Comments: We did this route with a 50 meter twin rope doubled in half, and it was very doable (including rappels). You can also save time on the rappels if you just down climb a few short sections, we only did three of them. You don't need to bring a number 3 camalot; and if I brought doubles of any sizes it would only be #1 and #2. Though doubles are not really necessary if you're a 5.8-5.9 climber, this route takes great gear wherever you want to put it.

Comments: I would definately say bringing to #3 cams would be excessive, the only half decent cam placements on the whole route were a yellow TCU, blue TCU and a #1 camalot, but all these had nut placement near them, so just bring nuts!

Comments: The route had two bolted balay stations, the second pitch had two bolts also, you can make this really as difficult as you want, but be comfortable on runouts/sparse pro

Comments: Very Fun alternative/climbing warm up to the misery ridge trail up and over, you pass right by this so why not do this instead of the crappy slippery hike?
