|Hey there Chris, I used a standard rack. Mostly bolted pitches(Not sport by any means)/bolt anchors. I did not carry any large gear. Up to a #2 BD. Most parties rap w/ 2 ropes (60m). Also to not spit to much beta.."Meander" is the key word for this route. Enjoy.|

I did this route yesterday 11-12-12.
Fun little adventure.
To echo what Jeremy said:
I would bring a small rack to #1 bd (we only used up to a .75).You will need two ropes to get off(4 double rope raps).
I am not sure but would almost bet that 50 meter ropes will NOT get you to the belays (maybe the first?).All pitches seem to be around 180 ft or so.
I did this route again yesterday 6-21-14. You will need 60 meter ropes for all pitches.

rating: 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b PG13
|I did this route a couple of times, the 2nd time we took a 50m 8mm "pull down" and this did work....but only with a foot or two to spare on one or two of the raps, so I think leading it with a 50m is out of the question. I think the rating was originally "5.5 - 5.6" and I would say "5.6 - 5.7" is more like it, especially because the crux (at least what I thought was the crux, on the 3rd pitch) is rather run-out, with the bolt 15-20 feet below you. Perhaps another bolt should be added here? Otherwise, a very nice route, fun climb. Too bad the rock from the top dbl bolt anchors to the Big Tree Ledge is pretty mossy.|
