I am doing the Trip on April 23. Anyone have any beta? Thankyou.

Hey Ronnie -- I did T. Trip last June. You'll find good beta and a gear list on FISH's web page. The 1st 4 pitches were pretty damp and dripping even in mid June, so not sure what they'll be like in late April. It's a good route w/ climbing similar to, although somewhat harder than Zodiac. A bit spoiled by the long bolt ladders high up on the route (take plenty of rivet hangers and 1/4" wingnuts). Take duct tape for those sharp edges. P5 really is killer!

Some 1/4 inch hangers are nice to have to beef up belays. Definately take along those wingnuts. 5th pitch is definately quality while the 14th was choss. Great route overall.
