If you do the first pitch of tollhouse traverse then you'll need: Cams #3-#5 yes big ones! Nuts: About 3 or 4 mid size range to put up the belay station and to protect the left walk out of the big crack. And most important at least 7 draws. 8 If you've go

Description:

This is a very well recommended route. Feels like a Yosemite wall! From the first belay station on the traverse, look right over a bulge for a triangle shaped platform that has 3 bolts for a belay. The traverse over is fun and memorable! On the belay station their is some of the oldest and mankeyst bolts I have ever seen(old R. Robbins maybe even!) . It only makes it bearable by the top bolt that is about brand new. After That it gets kind of hard. It is rated 5.8 but seriously i would give it a 5.9+, it has a couple of high steps and crimps. Pitch two ends at a white nest of bird crap. Then it's just up 2 more pitches and out. Pitch 2 has a very spooky high step. If you biff it you'll be in for a slide! Have fun!

Descent Options:

Top out and walk off.
