single finger sized cams plus doubles from BD green 0.75 up to yellow #2. a #3 might be helpful for some. smaller anchor placements avail further back. walked off by scrambling off backside and down the obvious gully to skier's left, cutting back around to the frontside (the backside ground level is much lower)

what's the name of the far left crack? led that earlier today. cams to 3.5". fun high roof, but still quite grainy and loose at spots. was hollering down that we likely would have to simul-rap down the front and back sides and flick the rope off of the left shoulder slope, then noticed the camo-painted rap anchor, haha Jan 21, 2016
Yesterday I TRed the spectacular crack just to the left of the final crack on this route.Really hard, technical, physical and good.12a I'd say.Also there is an anchor above the far lefthand crack. looks like fun. May 23, 2015
