I'm sure the answer is already on here but can anyone tell me what rack is needed to aid climb the route? Thanks

only did it up past the roof pitch. at the time i had 1 talon, 1 or 2 cliffhanger, and maybe a mid sized cam hook + standard free rack of doubles with micro gear. Been a long time but thats about it. doesnt take much unusual gear. Not sure about the upper pitches as they were soaked when i was up there and it was night time by the time my partner finished jugging roof pitch.

might be nice to bring a belay seat for the roof pitch if you're a slow so your belayer doesnt have to suffer. its a semi stance belay. Not crucial just a thought that popped into my head.

I'd venture that the uppers are still pretty wet right now but i havent been round those parts.

cheers

I believe you need some larger stuff for the upper pitches. Small nuts, hooks, camhooks, double rack from .33-3" works for up to the roof
