Yes I read the description. I've also ready about 4 other ones too. Do we need big bros and I assume we need a #5

What did you guys/gals use?

won't need either one. Its one move up a chimney, just climb up and clip a bolt. Its easy and you'll be pissed if you humped a big unit like that up there. Now don't get in the way of all the free climbers, they are gods and own the rock and look down on you as an aid climber...

If you have them, a green link cam on each aider will get you up 80% of the route. Just slide em up and step up... All the way to the top. Crazy how fast you can move when you don't have to fuck around with gear. I don't think I even brought a 3 the last time I did it. Decide how much you want to run it out between bomber c1 and that will dictate the finger sized gear you bring. Offset nuts/cams are helpful but not necessary... Sean C

This is a great time to do the the route. The chimney will be a grovel to aid through but it's not long. Most of the route is like they said green link cam. Stupid fast dont forget to place pro. However, the crux pitch(12d dihedral) is thin cams 0 metilous or so. It's the only place aiding they will be maditory. Offset cams are not mandatory, or even all that useful. Offset nuts are a different story.

Tiny brass is not that useful. If the weather is good I will be out there tr solo on the hard pitches and will happily high five you as you blaze past.

I only ask please don't climb when the rock is wet. There is limestone galore
