There are only a few hand sized pods and are separated by narrower sections (takes BD #0.5 to #1), bring those sizes as well unless you want to block those good jams. Wild sequences to hit those slots. Consider placing something on the side after the lip to keep the rope out of the crack, otherwise your rope may get jammed up with the last piece below the roof.
