Protection

Well protected:

"Protection: This route takes a wide variety of gear.
First Pitch: nuts and small to medium cams
Second Pitch: long sling for the roof, blue tcu,
double BD #.75
Third Pitch: larger cams up to BD #2

Take some long extendable slings.

Due to the nature of the roof move a backpack is not ideal."
