Watch your rope as you do the layback moves into the offwidth, it's really easy to get your rope caught under the roof and pretty much halt any upward progress.
Sling all your pro long and set it deep. I didn't...and halfway up, all my cams (#4-#6 BD) got pulled sideways by my rope. Holy cow.
One last thing: If you climb this, please bring some anchor material. That is, bring a long piece (10') of webbing/cordalette and a couple rings to replace the rolled aluminum ones that are up there.

Still a bit gritty, and probably doesn't get the traffic it deserves. Very, very physical. Maybe OW climbing just isn't my thing. My left knee won't forget this climb anytime soon!
Added some new tat to the rap slings on the summit 11/20/11. These bolts could really benefit from some added chain and rap rings for longevity.
