|If you are clipping the bolts on the lower crack you will only need one #2. The extra #4 was nice.|

Did this climb yesterday...kicked my ass. The guide book labels it as a 5.10c, I strongly disagree. If you listen to the book, you may find yourself in trouble, it recommends small to medium pro, I wish I would have had 2 X #4s (for the top third of the route), and 2 to 3 X #3. I used all 3 of my #2s that I took up. the rest can be protected with #.5-#.75. The lower bolted portion of the climb can be protected with a #2 if you're not wanting to use any bolts.
Careful on the first perch, a lot of loose rock up to basketball size. The first move into the crack was super physical for me, pulling the quazi roof. Once you get your feet onto the face, its still a super physical route with few places for fists or fingers.
I walked away bloodied and happy. Enjoy.
