Jeans are a great piece of gear for this route. If you recreate the falls committed by the first ascentionists like I did, do not wear modern, thin, and cute prana pants. I found this leads to cheek raspberries.
A brilliant and beautiful pitch that every slab addict should do.

|Gold camalot perfectly protects in a pod under the initial roof. The falls at the crux proper are totally safe and clean. A red #1 camalot can be snuck in the groove below the anchor. A good belay option exists on the ledge 20ft below the roof, right between Romance on the Rocks and A Bright Shining Lie...look for the fixed nut and add an orange tcu.|
