I know that SQL2 says this is bolts only, but there is a 20 foot runout that takes gear, so do yourself a favor and bring a few pieces. If you're under 5'8", you'll have trouble clipping the bolt above the runout from a confident stance and will instead have to move up onto marginal feet before reaching it. You'll be happy you have a piece below you. Gear: above the 4th bolt, before pulling the small roof, there's a pocket for a #9 or #10 BD nut (.75" to 1"), above the small roof you can get small (.5") to medium 1-2") cams in a horizontal/downward flaring crack and before you move up to the 5th bolt, there's another small horizontal crack that takes a finger sized cam (.5-.75"). It's easy ground, but might as well get some pro.
