I know, I know, I know. It's not like it's affordable, what, with all that climbing gear you had to buy!

So imagine that I have family in Oregon and was nutty enough to check this out. How much of this pile did you actually use?

it's been a while since we've done this thing (& at the time there was essentially no info on it other than an old guidebook from the 70's that talked about giant bongs :)...but I think it takes nothing exotic. I recall (I think!) many red,yellow, blue camalot placements on the chossy crack of P2 (P1 was mostly fixed as was P3). There might've been some #4 spots - I don't remember anymore. Don't think I used anything huge or tiny. Leave a rope fixed on P3 (the pitch that puts you at the base of the summit boulder) since it's very overhung...you'd have trouble getting back to the rap station atop P2 otherwise & double 70 m lines will not make the ground from top of P3. Check for nesting closures in the Menagerie - it might be closed till July this whole area. Otherwise, have fun & check out that recent pic posted by g orton on cascadeclimbers.com (look under Oregon pinnacles thread)...WOW, simply wow!!!

Thanks for the info. Now all I have to do is convince my aid partner it's worth the trip! I guess I could rope solo it but it's more fun to suffer with aid with a buddy! This photo? http://cascadeclimbers.com/plab/data/500/medium/Southface_TurkeyMonster.jpg

ps as far aid routes in Oregon go, this is one of the most worthy objectives imho.
