Awesome route, I would maybe even take some larger gear these days!

If you like your fisty/liebacks then this is a must do for you...you can actually "see through" to the other side on part of this route.

Pillar belay is spectacular!

An amazing route! Really fun chimney on the first pitch leads to a short but sweet fisty second pitch. If you bring 2 #3's and 2 #4's you'll feel really safe and secure.

First two pitches are fantastic! I would recommend 3 #4 C4s. One rap w/two 60m ropes will get you back to the base of the climb from the bolted P2 belay.
