I did not see any protection on this climb which would qualifyas medium stopper. The upper porsion does not seem to have any protection on the route.
Evaluate pro before committing.

The description for this route is all jacked up.
Start on the SE corner of the W tower in a short dihedral. Get to the horizontal and traverse left to a nice vertical crack with a perfect yellow C4 placement.
The anchor is touch to set, some tri-cams made it ok but most people will probably want to run long webbing back to the trees.

The most fun route at this crag. Wasn't sure where it started (didn't have my phone), so climbed it starting in dihedral. Will go back to lead this one.
I agree, tri-cams and long webbing to sling the tree for TR anchor.
