This will take anything from Hands to fists to bigger cams, whatever you want. TR sets up nicely with a 4,5,6. Rap off tree

Great crack, lots of hand and fist jams deep in the crack. The tree is good to belay and rappel off of. Bring 3s, 4s, and a 5.

The book lists this route as 9+ but that assumes you climb the second pitch. The first pitch as described here felt more like 5.8

I agree that the first pitch felt 5.8ish. The second pitch is pure offwidth lurchfest and where the 9+ comes in. Both pitches were high quality.

The first pitch takes C4 2,3,4. The second pitch takes 3s and 4s down low but eventually you'll need a 5 or 6 (which you can bump to the top)

Replaced the webbing on the upper rap anchor, green sling is new, pink rope is old. If your going it be good to replace one of the cords on the rhody at the top of the crack, not a big deal but it could use it, I belayed there.
