A worthy, and engaging adventure across and up the Papoose! You definitely want a follower who is comfortable following traverses though, as there are many.
P1 10b (Centerfold) - Fun, and thoughtful move at the bolt. Gear anchor.
P2 5.8 - Easy traverse to a burly 5.8 crack. And then a delicate traverse to a bolted anchor.
p3 5.10a - Kind of weird getting to the bolt, and a touch dirty. The chimney move is straightforward, but don't fall as the ledge is in play. The upper crack was DIRTY unfortunately, and I had to dig our a placement or two. But it is fairly easy. Bolted anchor.
P4 5.9 - The traverse into Hairpin is easy (5.8) and well protected for leader and follower. And you then get the 5.9 move on the Hairpin pitch. Bolted anchor.
P5 5.6 - Easy, but fun (and runout). Left and up past the trees. Then straight up to a cool hand traverse crack back to a bolted below.
P6 5.10a - Solid slab action.
Gear: Nuts, double cams finger size to #3. I definitely used the #3 camalot unlike the contributor above.
We rapped Centerfold with 2 double 70m raps, but there is an easy descent to the North.
