This is a terrific climb. Three or four stars, I can't decide which. The climb is a bit hard to read for an onsight attempt. I felt that there was just enough good gear, which made it really fun. I agree with Andy that singles to 1" is plenty, make sure you have a good assortment of stoppers.
For me, the location of the third bolt was great for clipping but felt too far to the left for the way I did the moves. I was a bit concerned that I'd fall into the rope and flip over if I blew the challenging sequence. (It's possible the FAs climbed further left.) Other than this it was fabulous and highly recommended.
