Looking to make a trip to RRG here in a few months. What should my trad rack consist of for there (cam sizes?)? Thanks for all the help!

I have a set of stoppers, doubles of C4's .5-3 and a single 4, and I've never really felt like I needed much more. Granted I don't climb very hard.

Pack for whatever size of crack that you want to climb. There are plenty of cracks and all sizes.

David is spot on - you can go wide or thin at the red. Scope out routes you want to do there using the guidebooks and pack accordingly.

Thanks for the advice sounds like a solid plan. Looking forward to the new guide book coming out next month

This, in general, but there are some routes that take the larger gear too. If you have a 5 and 6, I'd bring them unless you're really strapped for space. The guide book doesn't always give you the beta on this. (For instance, "She Loves Me" at Willies Wall. While it can be lead without a big bro or #6, it protects much better with one.)

Awesome thanks a lot!
