One of the best, some parties can do it in 4 hours some take two days. Short crux to enter the weakness propper and then steep snow and the intermittent ice pitch till mid height. Then three to four great solid ice pitches to access the upper bowles. Rappels were set for for 100' raps when we did her. But doubles should be mandatory to get down in any kind of decent time.
Access by flying into the Route Canal Glaicer. Or go old school from the Mountain House and Hump ur ass off.
5-6 screws / light rack maybe five cams / nuts / hexes / pitons / extra material for decent slings

Just got back from a trip to the Root Canal in early May and climbed this route. Conditions I think were pretty good. Lots of steep snow climbing and a probably around 7 pure vertical ice sections. Such an incredible climb tho and definitely will be coming back to try Shaken. As far as the Pro goes I think the guide book is pretty spot on and would probably just only bring a few extra pickets
