Stellar route, had a blast on it this afternoon!
A couple notes:
Easily rappels with one 60m rope, though getting to the anchor on pitch 2 is a little frightening as you have to swing into it, backing up your rappel is a great idea.
Offsets protect the crux move on P1 quite well, thanks to the OP for the suggestion!
For gear I would say that doubles from .3-5" is sufficient, especially if you have a set of offset cams for P1. A #6 is optional, but can be placed. The top of P3 begs for a #3, so think about saving one of those for the top.
I highly recommend this route. Great climbing, shady, and out of the wind. Get on it!

I didn't think the gear is suspect on pitch 1 at all. From the stance before the crux I placed a bomber red alien in front of my face and a bomber red C3 right at the crux. A green c3 would have placed even easier. They were perfect.
- I'd say doubles down to yellow alien and singles below that get it done.
- Nothing smaller than #1 camalot needed after pitch 1
- All the pitches rap with 1 60m rope EXCEPT the 1st pitch! The tails came up about 4 feet short so pay attention and downclimb.
- Awesome really fun climb with sick OW and Chimneys!

|A great climb in an incredible area. Be sure to oogle at Feast of Snakes and company while at the base. G-string divas is just next door and worth doing as well.|
