It could be done in one pitch if pro is extended properly, however we did it in two. P2 is wide and a #6 Camalot or Big Bro would be helpful, but not required. I made it work with #4 and #5 Camalots.

PG13 or worse without a 6" cam. Without at least a 5" cam, R or X. And I would rate that section 5.8.

If you do have a #6, the route is fun and well protected (maybe even without the #5). A #4 adds comfort at the top, though the climbing is easy there.

I just lead the first pitch and was happy to find a two bolt anchor with chains, making it easy to rap off of P1.
