Thin cracks and gear bring you up over the roof. Aim for the ring piton using crisp edges. From the pin climb straight up searching for pro along the way. As it steepens up there is a fixed angle, from here make a hard move to a right ward traverse that will bring you to the anchor


Start at the "top" of the "hill" on the golden slab. This is about 100 ft. up from $70 Commitment


2 pins A full rack of TCU's and a couple of handsized cams, QD's. Maybe some webbing for the anchor.

Good to know the origin of the route name TP. I think all should do this as it makes good campfire talk.

This pitch has some great climbing with classic LCC movement over pretty awesome rock. It could use a little more cleaning, mostly near the top where it gets pretty devious, and the feet become slippery due to lichen.
