Pretty good climbing starting on the left side of the formation, then trending up and right. There are some fragile edges and fins that will wear away with a few more ascents. The rock is generally sound and the climbing enjoyable.
A standard rack to 3" should do. It takes wires and cams and the pro is good.

Be ready for loose stuff beyond the ledges. My wife pulled a chunk as large as her torso off this one. This along with the descent from the route makes you forget that the climbing is actually pretty good.
I used two cams as directionals for the second and stoppers exclusively for protection. Solid placements the entire way.

LOOSE! Broke off both handholds simultaneously while above my first piece of gear. Thought I was going to deck into the scrub oak for sure. Spent the rest of the climb trying not to soil myself.
