Easy to protect overhang with .75 cam and runner. The second bolt is on the upper face before the transition to arete. A runner and #1 cam in the upper crack before the second bolt is helpful--especially if a shorter climber. The third bolt is on the upper arete, with the final bolt at the top section. There are three hangers on top of the climb for anchoring, so a long piece of webbing is helpful to set it up.
