The gear on this route is typical of Eldorado Canyon. There are only two bolts on it and there is no other gear until you pull the crux move over the roof.

Protection 

2 quickdraws, large stoppers.

You can get gear in at the corner of the roof. It is an opposed gear rig & takes some fidgeting to get in. But definitely is worth taking the time to get in. With a long sling it helps to help protect the 5.11 face traverse moves to get up to the bolt under the roof.
