Does anybody have the beta for fat fingers?

I haven't quite figured out how to do it yet, but this is almost certainly the most well-protected 5.12 trad climb at White Rock (at least, at the popular cliffs).
Rack should go from small stuff up to #0.75s , with maybe 1 #1 Camalot at the very top, nothing bigger. (I placed 4 #0.75's, but it is probably is okay with less; also the 0.2 and 0.3 camalot size is pretty key for the hard sections).
