Always considered this one mildly long pitch and never knew anyone that did it as 2...didnt need a bolt added unless carrying an extra rope up that steep trail was too much of a burden. just a random lurkers opinion though

This is a fantastic pitch. Not to be missed if climbing in this area.

I did this route with only 2 #3 camalots, and 1 #4, but you might was well take 3 of them. If you are linking the whole thing into 1 pitch, you probably want a 4th or 5th.
