I would recommend a double rack of cams from yellow alien to #4 camalot (yes doubles on the big boys) and a single set of nuts. There are nice beefy anchors at top.

This route is longgggg. Bring your 60m for this one or do two raps. Midpoint anchors are atop a sport climb to the left of the climb.

3-4 each of #3 and #4 camalots would not go unused on this route. a #5 is also nice to have- she's a wide one!

So good,
I took two #3s and two #4s and was fine bumping a piece or two. A few small pieces were good as well.

Four stars indeed! Not PG in the least; great gear the whole way; never run-out. I agree with Wilder; if not bumping and you want comfort then double rack to BD #4 with a third #3 and #4; single #5. Looks harder than it is. Smaller hands won't get the beautiful fist jams.
