I took 2 #4s and a #5, and that was nice on the second pitch. You can do the route with one 80m rope, and you do not need to take a tag line for the raps. Also you can leave all the gear bigger than 3 inch at the top of pitch two, you do not need it for the last pitch.
Finally, the beginning of pitch two has a LOOSE pillar/block, be very careful about moving about on it. I was able to sway it but not remove it 'cause it's 20ft tall.
Otherwise, great route!
