The major beta that was missing from all the topo resources had to do with the 5.8 traverse back over to the Breakfast Run belay. This hollow shitty flake does not give you the same confidence that reading 5.8 on the ground gives. Have fun and remember pull down not out. Once youve crapped yourself and your at the belay sh*t again cause you find one bolt and an old tree stump, with cracks on both side that take the same size gear as which you use up on the way over. Great so heres my beta.
Either take a bolt kit and drill a second bolt, makes the most sense.
make sure you have 2X #3camalot and 1x #3.5or4
All heads were fixed.
Side note. Because of my stupidity we had to figure out a way to return to the belay at the top of Cannabis wall which was just one traverse pitch away. Eric volunteered to go back for my food bag so he climbed up crescent ramps a little way to a tree that was over that of the last belay, he anchored to it and I lowered him down to the belay were he was under the impression that he was going to jumar back up but upon his inspection he realized that all the flakes that he was being lowered down seemed solid enough to free on the way back up so he did and said that it was quite good quality climbing.
As to the traverse big cams would be helpful if aiding. Pretty much the doubles of the #3, #3.5 that you also need higher up. The belay on the farside of the traverse is a bomber 2 bolt chain anchor.
Did you find the #1C4 camalot at the second last belay when you did cannabis in the winter? If so how many beer to buy it back.
I was up last sunday to solo Cannabis and all heads and fixed gear were in place. Last anchor on Cannabis is a tree and the slings could use replacing.
was hoping to get up to Breakfast Run but a mistake that forced a rappel mid pitch to fix changed my mind set and I just cruised the rest of the day away.
I had one head blow on me, which I replaced. I was surprised how dirty it was - gardened quite a bit of roots/moss/muck out of the 2nd and 3rd pitches. Still good times. No crowds/passing issues on the aid routes (unlike the drama on other parts of the chief )
