I usually agree with Darshan's assessments of routes, but he was a bit off here. Fisrt, as stated on the main Hairpin Wall page, this route is NOT a "classic thin crack", but rather a face climb. There is maybe 10' of crack climbing on the first pitch in 180'. The route has 6 bolts, not the four shown on the topo. In addition to the #3 camalot (w/ long sling) placement in a hole before the second bolt, there is only really one other piece of gear needed, a .75 or 1 camalot in the short left-facing corner with a long sling. After about 10' of crack (before it becomes into a wide flare and turns left), step out right onto face past two more bolts to anchors. The fourth bolt protects a solitary 5.10a slab move. Lots of 5.9 on this route.

I saw approximately zero placements for small wires or tcu's.
