|Doubles of #2 C4 mandatory. Did it once with out it and it makes for a 50ft. ground fall. First piece is high and that area is often sandy. Better like slab. Try traversing from the start of Pepsi for some added fun.|

|You could do this route without a single number 2. A number 3, which I didn't bring, would really take some of the runout out. No matter what you bring, there are a few sections with insecure, sandy moves with severe potential for injury in a fall.|

Cleaned this route off as best I could and led it, but it's no where close to ideal. There is still a good bit of dirt in a few of the gear placements and on the face itself.
Definitely runout in spots, and the crux move over the bulge above the big horizontal is not very well protected. Doubles of a #3 C4 and a single #2 are definitely necessary. The gear is all solid if you clean out the placements.
Despite the grime, the movement is good and I liked this climb. It'd be three stars if it was clean.
