|I climbed it w/a handfull of #4 camalots. They were almost all tipped out and fairly useless except as psychological pro. Pretty interesting and fun for being so short.|

Leading this is a lot of fun. Gear beta to follow. Don't read if you want a legit onsight!
You definitely need big gear. I used 2 (4.5)s, 1 (6) and 1 (4). Did a fair bit of leap frogging and bumping with the first 3 cams. A couple middle sized cams for the top. Great fun. Good intro to offwidth. Good place to practice the cam mgmt skills, too.
