A good fist crack for the first half, takes BD no. 3 cams nicely. The top is much wider but an very easy (5.4?). No rap rings but you can take the walk off from the back side without too much trouble.

If you're trad climbing bring a BD 5. Placed one BD 4 about 10 feet up and it was nearly fully expanded. Everything above that was wider so I downclimbed and committed to purchasing a BD 5.
