Gear to 0.5" many wires needed. Offset wires are useful.

This is a fun route. Thin gear protects much of it; I recommend a set of small brass wires and tiny cams (including a black alien or equivelant).

Also, the climb is probably closer to 60'-70' long, definitely not 90'.

Who's got the FA on this one?

I dunno. Kennedy "rediscovered" the pitch a few years back, but the anchor was already up there from some prior ascent.

A #4 camalot was the perfect first piece in the obvious, large pod where the crack climbing begins.

In terms of rock quality and difficulty, this climb is up there with The Fracture at Sugarloaf for me. Once spied, this line needs to be climbed.
