Small stoppers low on the first pitch then medium to large hexes or cams on the rest of the first pitch. Primarily bolts on all other pitches after the first. Bolts tend to protect crux moves fairly well, but they are far apart and can be hard to see

Description:

pro to 2". has a 5.8 to 5.9 variation start to the right of the first crack the meets the other. 2nd pitch is run between bolts. The third can be finished at a hanging belay or meet up with Tollhouse Traverse for a more comfortable station. Fourth pitch crosses Tollhouse Traverse then climbs face and friction just to the right of a right facing open book (One of two last pitch variations for Tollhouse Traverse). There is a two bolt anchor about even with the last belay of Tollhouse Traverse. You can walk off to the left from there or continue up one more pitch with easy run out to make a fifth pitch.

Great First Pitch. Walked off after the fourth. Scenery was the best part after the first pitch, the fog over Fresno and the sun shining was great. As you cross the Tollhouse Traverse There is a great Tri-Cam placement and Then a green Alien fits well up and left in the Traverse's Crack.

Well, the first pitch crack was really cool. After that the route is low angle slab.
