A gnarly 5.11 boulder problem start (cupped hands or fists and awkward tight fingers, can be aided) leads to stellar 5.10 hands up a gorgeous vertical wall. This route is as good as the best desert splitters and is on some of the best rock in jtree. In my opinion, the best route in the park by a signifigant margin and one of the best routes anywhere.
Take a good selection of .75" - 3" cams, mostly in the hand size. A big piece or two might be nice to protect two short offwidth sections but aren't totally necessary. At least one thin piece (TCU) if not a couple are needed to protect the gnarly boulder problem start.
