I don't have an RCM&W, which is one of the reasons why I come to this site. Is there any more info available on this climb, such as location, description, if I really need an entire standard rack, etc?

Good question Chris, most of the stuff at Taylors (especially in that area) is pretty short. I've never scoped this route but I would be surprised if more than 4 pieces of gear were involved in the lead...

This route in the leaning face east of Real Thing and west of the Sizzle Foot cracks. Area is 60 west of asphalt jungle near the end of a flat trail leading to the rest of the potholes. Real Thing is the prominent big roof.

From the top of these the opposite side has Slickside, Shlocksides and Lunge and Plunge.
