    Does anyone have any suggestions for WI-5 routes for which a toprope can be setup? All input is appreciated. Thanks.

    If it's in, the waterfall at Poke-O-Moonshine, you can go up the gully on the right (WI1/2) and set up a two rope tied together top rope.
    Remember that with that much rope out comes with stretch, a fall in the first few meters will have you hit the ground.

    Maybe some lines at Pitchoff Quarry.

    There's lines in Chapel Pond gully but the problem is that getting up there needs leading other routes.

    I would second the waterfall. Just remember that with tying two ropes together for top rope, you need the ability to pass the knot through the belay. (Two belayers works best).

    Or two belay devices also works.
