A brown tri-cam near the top worked great for me. Watch out for stinging nettle growing out of the wall on the way to the first bolt; it hurts!

I went back to this for the first time in years and found this route to be much more fun than I remembered. It isn't as straight forward as Wienie Roast but still uniquely fun. Typical BCC technique works well here. You know the one where you, "find the right position to lock off on a hold then paw around for the next hold and roll into the position that makes the new one a jug". Loads of cool gear in there. Seems like staying right after the bolts is more fun.

This route could use an independent anchor. Its possible to clean on rappel but a lot more fun to do an extra lap and clean it on TR.
