You can probably get away with no gear on this short and fun climb. There are two distinct hard sections with a good shake out in the middle.

Start in a shallow left facing dihedral just to the left of the big roof routes on the lower wall. Look for a pin in the corner that starts the route. Clip the pin, plug pro or don't (sling long), make moves to gain the good hands above the small roof to clip the bolt. Surmount the roof to gain the juggy face above. Move up the steep face clipping two more bolts and move right below the roof to the anchors.


1 pin and some bolts. Bring some longer draws to keep it running smooth. A 60m is all you need to get down from the two-bolt anchor.
