This is a splitter fist/offwidth crack in a right facing corner. It would be much more difficult if it didn't have the opposite corner to stem off of for most of the height. The rock making up the offwidth (90% of the climb) is very good, but after the crack ends you need to make a couple easy but committing face moves on less than inspiring rock.

You could place as many #4 camalots as you want. Lacking multiple #4s, I was also able to find a place for a #5 about 1/3 the way up, and a #3 at the very top before the crack jogs left. You can place a #0.75C4 in the horizontal before the face moves, but the rock is a bit hollow sounding...
