Extend ~6 ft from Minnow anchors to avoid rope drag through tight notch, and/or sling around block at top of GWS.

This is mostly easy (5.6) climbing except for the first 10' which is about 5.8. Average 5.7? A #5 Camalot is good to have if you want "anywhere" pro as #4s only fit in a few spots. You really only need a #3, #4, and a #5 to protect the whole thing.
