Light rack. Small to Med cams and nuts. A few load limiters. Double ropes are handy.
A left leaning chimney and crack system that leads up 7 pitchs, a fun route that is a good beginer multipitch gear route but is not easy to bail on. Belays all have minimum 2 bolts as of 2009. Some new locations but easy to find. Last pitch climbs a clean steep wall with a 5.8 finish up a slab sporting 2 protection bolts.
Scramble up and left over slabs, ledges, trees and scree. There is a faint trail and cairns. Connects to main trail. Right goes to the summit in 20 minutes. Follow trail left back to car.

Great multipitch with a very fun 2nd pitch along the large prominent chimney, with good gear, bolts and pins.
Note, once you get to the final pitch there is still a fair amount of travel over short cliffbands and broken terrain, that will require an hour to the trail unless you know exactly where you are going.
