Enough gear?

So I have got minimum 3 of each size up to a C4 #3 and in some sizes 4 or 5 of each. I'm itching to get on some routes like scar face, annunaki, etc. Do I need more gear? I got on scar face years ago and I thought it went though the sizes pretty well, but I could be wrong.

Should I try to get at least 6 of each size? Or 7, or 8?

You'll be fine. Especially on annunaki and scarface.

If you're gonna do some classic hand cracks like Warm Up, Incredible, Bunny Slope etc. you're definitely gonna need more #2, but for most climbs at most crags 3 of each should be pretty okay. Just make sure you know what you're getting into! The guidebook has good gear beta on just about every climb, and most climbers you run into will be willing to parse out some gear to you for specific climbs if you need to fill gaps in your rack.

Have fun!

Just look up the routes and see what gear you need. That's definitely enough to keep you busy for a while.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
