Despite all the beta provided above, I thought I might add that this is a really good route. Yes, it has some bat shit and loose rock, but it is a good wide-crack adventure. Wrestle up a wide, left-facing corner to a roof, pull through into a wide splitter, pass the guano block then work left and continue with varied crack climbing to the top. Bring a standard East A rack plus a #4 and a few #5s, no #6 is needed. A few runners are nice too. (5.10+, ~100')
