Pitch 1: 5.7 chimney for 80ft Belay at top of chimney. Pitch 2: From belay climb left past a small roof for 5.8 featured face climbing or right for 5.7 friction. You can get in one piece after the belay in the roof and then it is about twenty feet to a bolt at the bottom of a crack. Follow shallow finger sized crack to bolted belay. Pitch 3: 5.7 continue to follow the crack system past a single bolt to a 2 bolt belay. Pitch 4: Traverse left on slabs to a very small right facing corner like feature that eventually leads to a gully and another ledge from here it is 3rd class. You can stop at another two bolted belay before the third class. We just simuled to the top.
On the Far Side of Tollhouse past Elephant Walk. Starts in the Chimney to the Left of Old Fart's Edge.

The bolt after the first pitch roof (at the top of the chimney), is more like 40 feet away, with no pro in between.

The Slater guidebook also states that the bolt is 20ft above the belay. I took the 5.8 "edges" option and found a placement about 10 feet from the belay (in my description above) Believe me, if I was 40ft out facing a factor two fall on a gear anchor it would be etched in my memory and I would make sure to mention it. Did you take the 5.7 friction version?
