This route is an unsung classic! Close to the road and wonderful climbing. The only detractor from it is the fact that the fists crux is a bit sandy...but that really isn't so bad. This thing looks deceptively easy from the ground...not so fast my friends! Great climb.
Would recommend singles 2-6" and small gear for the anchor at the top. Double it up if you aren't comfortable bumping gear or running it out a little.
Also, all of the guidebooks give this thing a .10, deservedly so...perhaps the page should reflect this?
