Short, but excellent section of crack. Fun. I do not agree with the gear advisory of the description, but did find excellent placements with c3's.

"Opt Pro" is a slight joke. At the time that is all I had with me, so I had to make due, and just saying it is possible to do with just those pieces.. I would have definitely preferred bigger pro without a doubt. Probably #3-4 C4's.
Some info worth noting then would be: bring pro #1 C4 size and under, or #1-4 C4 sizes. It can be protected either way.
