I did this route last year with a friend. Didn't use any gear larger than a number 3 Camalot. A Number 4 wouldn't have been bad near the top of P1. We didn't any beta on this route at the time, and unaware I could sling some things higher, I foolishly set up an anchor in the top of the chimney just before it opens up to the lower summit. It was super bomber, and super awkward. P2 is awesome, with some exposure to it. In the "conn cavity," you can fit some gear in a slot between the crystals here, maybe a .5 camalot. My second fell here, but all was well as the hardware at the summit is good.
Side note: An old wild country rock was left at the top of the lower summit somewhere, consider it booty.
