Fantastically fun lead, especially for newbies. Book advises small gear to .75. I placed one small BD nut between bolt 4 and 5. But you have gear options all over the place. Lots of knob tie off possibilities too.

Hardest move before first bolt (another 6" of height may have helped me). Lots of nut options above. Super interesting rock!
