Fun but spooky for 5.7, looks like that whole flake will be on the ground one of these days!

This is a good 5.7.

Can I get away without a #4 on this route? Currently i only go up to a #3 C4 and a #9 hex. Thanks!

You can get away without a #4, but if I recall, this will require you to runout the last pitch a bit (on the last pitch, you face climb to the left of a pretty wide crack that you stuff gear into). Others can correct me here, but if you are pushing your limit, you may want a wide piece.

As Jay said, a 5.7 leader will want a #4. If you are willing to run it out a bit on ~5.7 , you'll be ok with the #3 and the hex, I think.

I thought P1, especially the upper half, was just as good if not better than any 5.7 pitch at Lover's Leap, but it felt more like 5.8; P2 seemed much easier, more like 5.6. Two BD #4 cams are useful on each pitch (there is a fixed BD #4 cam in the middle of P1). Take along at least a half dozen slings, you'll want them for a short traverse and for gear placed deep in the wide crack.

You can get away without a #4 camalot on the upper part of the first pitch by using a knob tieoff, a bomber number 10 hex, and two #3 camelots To (over)protect the upper crack drop a #10 hex, #3 camelot, knob tieoff, and a #4 camelot prior to topout
