A single rack, with extras for an anchor and a sling for the roof, would do just fine on this climb. You may want a BD#4 or #5 to protect the crux (I used a #4 and it was 'alright'), although you may be able to push a smaller one way up in there. There's an obvious belay before walking off with a plethora of choices for gear size (0.5-3). The best crack is BD#3 sized.
This climb is 5.7 -5.9 up until the crux. Pulling over the roof is where the crux is and is some sort of .10. The crux is very committing mentally and physically and made the climb. The ledge climbing in the start is a little bleh.

|I agree with the #4 being "alright" at the crux. A #5 would probably have been a lot better. Looking at the placement I felt that a swinging fall would have pulled that cam right out. Great climb, really fun once you get past the ledges.|
