When I first saw the intimidating flare at the start of this route I thought it might require a lot of large gear but I only ended up needing one #4 CL. There's a solid large nut placement to be had at the bottom of the wide business. At the top of the corner it is best to continue straight up the corner to the anchor. You can take an early exit to the right but then must negotiate an insecure sandy ledge back to the anchor.
