Best to use some nuts to set one arm of the TR anchor and the fixed staples for the other arm.
If you follow the line straight up the middle of this photo, I think the route is way harder than 5.4. Certainly harder than Blocks, to the right. There's one move on the finger crack, near that 45° flake that's tricky. Especially for shorties.

|I have never top roped this climb before, but I have led it multiple times. The protection is pretty good. Most of the climb is 5.4 territory except for one 5.7/5.8 move after the first 15' of climbing. It's a fun lead!|

|I've always looked at this as a potential trad lead, up the spiderwebbing finger cracks and then traversing the huge flake at the top to the anchors of Friction Pitch. Anyone done it?|
