|2 #5 camalots for the ow pitch is good, we had a # 6 wc and # 6 bd and 1# 5 bd but I was only able to use the #6 cams in a couple spots while # 5 works all over. Great route. We bailed just after the ow for lack of water.|

For the OW pitch, we had a little bit more pro than you Zach, three #6 BD, one #5 BD and one Blue Big Bro (at the end of the pitch, optional). We had the same water problem.
The Approach is LONG with the haul bag. Bivy at pitch 7 is GREAT!
By the way, Smash Mouth is incredible!

Here are my thoughts.
-This route seemed like a lot of crap pitches and bush whacking for few good pitches.
-We brought one 5 and 6. I would bring an extra number 5 if you don't feel comfortable pushing a 5 up with you.
-With a 70 we linked 1&2, 3&4, 5-7, 9&10, 13&14, 16&17, 19&20.
-Linking Walter's Whites with the Jesus was a pretty sick pitch, plus it took out a hanging belay.
-We got a rope stuck in the crack while rappelling the Jesus pitch.
-It took 1.5 hours for the hike in and the same for the hike out.

|I approach isnt that bad if you know where to go.. if not, it can get ugly. For the route.. it redefined the terms dirty, chossy, and death blocks. A memorable outing at best.|
