Have a big bro or a BIG Cam or your going to be running out the end of the 1st pitch

Agreed. I led this with a #6 Camalot (and no big-bros) and there was only one spot in the last 30-40ft of the 1st pitch that was small enough for it. It was nearly fully expanded and I had to reach in as far as I could to place it (note: I'm 6'2"). This made a really fun climb, rather nerve racking.

In short, bring BIG-BROS!

In retrospect I could've been a little better with my gear beta...

Once you make it about 35-40 ft up the route the chimney begins, for the first 15-20 ft there are .75 and #2 placements in a crack on the pillar right of the chimney....after that to the pedestal belay a #4 big bro works best. A #6 C4 as mentioned above is really tipped out for protection...

We top roped this two weeks ago and pulled off a huge block near the top. It was about 1ft thick x 3 ft wide and 6 ft tall. The top of the climb is a bit harder now
