    The biggest piece I used on this was a #4 Camalot. There are places for lots of smaller gear. I used a #3 at the top but nothing bigger than a #1 lower on the pitch.

    This is a super easy / fun lead. You can place pro every 4 feet if you've got it. Save a couple pieces for the top though. You'll get to a ledge and want to walk to the left about 15 feet to the anchors of Mons. I placed a #3 right below the short face climb to the anchors. Make sure you're communicating with anyone who may be getting on Mons so there's not a cluster at the top.
