it is possible to set up on TR and belay from above. some horrid rope drag - but the climb was surprisingly fun considering all the lichen on it!

Great route. Top outs on small pinnacles always freak me out though. Funny how being on top doesn't bother tourists much though.

Fun climb. A #5 is helpful on the upper section.

Hey Mike. Is this one generally hand sizes? Always been interested in doing it.

Hand sizes off the ground but then it's mostly fist and larger. I didn't place anything smaller than a #1 I think? Maybe one smaller piece on the left face crack just to save a 3 for higher.
