This awesome climb has it all. Start up a left-trending ramp to reach the first bolt. Then get ready for an exciting hand traverse, a locker finger crack, an exposed mantle, and a bunch of other really fun climbing.
just right of He She
9 bolts, 2 bolt anchor. A set of TCU's or nuts is useful for protecting the finger crack at the top. Runout without at least one supplementary piece.

Great route. As far as gear though, the top is a little runout, but its not so bad and the fall is clean. Thus, I don't bring gear for that part (though if you want gear, as Bryan states above, finger sized gear is what you would want). However, I would recommend a #3 Camalot for the initial portion of the climb because you are low enough to the ground at that point that blowing the moves up and left towards the ramp could be problematic. Just my 2 cents.

Great route-- Scott Ayers puts up a bunch of em! Many thanks to him for all the superb lines he finds and the excellent and well-placed hardware he installs. (Crystal Crag also offers many top-notch Ayers routes, not to mention all the routes of his I have climbed in SoAz.)
For gear, I only used a #3 and a micro-cam near the top.

This is not a run-out climb, I did not even consider placing any pro. Should be categorized as sport, it would be a shame for someone not to get on this incredible line because they don't have trad gear.

Every individual's physical ability and mental comfort is different. I do not think the recommendation for a couple pieces is at all out of line, especially considering most people will have a rack with them at this crag anyway.

um .yeah bring the gear. after a few bolts, 1/3 of the way up it gets a little easier. yes. But I believe the reason their is no bolts in this section is because their is a gorgeous right leaning crack that's just asking for a cam. and if you miss the next bolt or fall near it you will absolutely hit the ledge thats ten feet off the deck.. 30 feet to a ledge... bring a few cams is what I say. And no its not a sport climb. because . well yeah taking a long clean whipper can be fun if stuffs run out. and its a clean fall. adds excitement.. In this case... you will hit the ledge and go splat..
