A #4 cam is a little better than a #3, but both work. Don't get scared off of this just because it's a 5.11 mixed climb... The twenty feet of trad are only 5.8. The climbing on the arete and in the corner is stellar! I can't usually onsight 11- so I thought it was a little soft at the grade. Maybe I just got lucky?
Definitely a more natural finish than the eponymous Utopian Vistas route (but that finish has the upside of being able to set up the classic Hopper's Hangover for toprope).
