I have climbed this route twice. First 2 pitches can be combined with a 70 but be ready for some drag. Third pitch is the crux but it is well bolted. There is actually 5 pitches not 3 but you can also combine the last 2. 5th pitch is super easy. Did it in the pouring rain with no problems. No fixed anchors on the last pitch so use the tree. Hardest part is the approach down to the base of the route. Be ready for some bush wacking.
