A fun route, but be careful of the loose pebbles at the top of the cliff. I sent a whole bunch down on my belayer while groping wildly for a topout jug (sorry, Dad!). I tried to clean some of them off the top as I walked out today, but I expect this work will be erased by the next rainstorm. It may be advisable to pre-hang your anchor slings before leading to avoid this unpleasantness altogether.
A #4 camalot is useful to protect the crux on this climb, though other gear can be found.
