|The bolt ladder pitch is straight forward ..old gear but no problem.Its about a 100' so one needs plenty of biners.|

Really fun route!
P2 seemed on the harder side of 5.10 if not 11- ( just for a bit ). The loose blocks didn't seem to bad, but I wouldn't trust gear in the flake.
An optional finish for the 4th pitch would be to take the easy handcrack up and left. This joins up with the kor-ingals and avoids the North Chimney. It seemed like a better option for rope drag and communication. Although, use extreme caution with the massive rocker block you crawl up and over around the corner.
You don't need as much gear as the book suggests. You would probably be fine with a double set from red c3 - #1bd with triples in #.75 1x #2, 1x #3. 8x runners and harvest the biners for the 16ish bolt ladder.
