I wouldn't dispute Tony's statement. This felt harder than some 11a routes.

As for gear, my wife and I both placed a #4 Camalot as our second piece. Other than that, gear to 2 inches.

Also, this route is awesome!

BETA ALERT*** There is a pretty good side-pull crimp in the wide crack that is very helpful to get through the initial overhang sequence. Very fun route! The top half after the ledge is not a gimme either, with some tricky jams, but good rests. I too placed a #4 in the wide crack. Stoppers do well on this route as well, especially down low.
