spectacular jug hauling on the first pitch followed by classic delicate face climbing on the second. one of the best routes at clifton. possible to break right at the first belay into witch wonder.

On the first pitch a small cam was used maybe 0.4 or 0.5? before the first bolt.

Also, I remember a no. 1 or 0.75 beeing used in a 5.4 section on the 2nd pitch. Aside from that I didn't need gear other than Quickdraws.

As Dom pointed out you can back up the runout sections on each pitch with a small cam on the first and usually a large nut on the second. But it is usually done as a sport route throughout since the two runout sections are the easiest sections on both climbs. As Ari stated, this route is spectacular! An awesome roof section with positive holds on the first pitch followed by a technical slab at the top with some great exposure
