Might be a dumb question but can't seem to find the answer anywhere on the site. But when searching for climbing routes using MP, if it says TR does that mean you can scramble to the top and set a top rope anchor without having to lead climb? Basically looking for routes (5.6-5.9) that you can walk/scramble to the top of to set the anchor. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Racked and loaded... name that splitter behind me?...
Typically it means it is only top-ropeable, but that doesn't necessarily indicate it is easy to scramble to the top....

^what he said. TR just means it typically isn't lead. There may be top access, but sometimes to set up a TR route you lead the one next to it to get the rope up and TR off shared anchors.

If it says in the route description then you should be good to go, otherwise it could very well be a route that is toproped after doing a lead route besid it.

I'd suggest getting on the regional forum and inquiring about crags in your area that are easy to set up TR.
