I didn't lead this route but seconded it. For pro a #6 BD cam is nice or big bros.
The belay was all hanging, we rapped and then set the anchor right as the crack gets to a hand crack. There is a little ledge but like 1 ft. out maybe, not much of a ledge.
The crack is a very odd one. Its about big enough for half your body but not big enough for chimneying. My brother almost fell out of the off width and he would have hit me and that would have been an epic. So just a heads up.
And yes now there is two humangous bolts on the top of the climb, they are very nice.

|Very fun lead. At least bring doubles of #1, #2, and #3. You might want a #4 (I ran it out a little). The offwidth is interesting. And it is many thanks to the MN DNR and State Parks that we have those huge bolts, custom made by their engineers. More may be coming!|

|Fun route despite the name. Awkward offwidth that beginning climbers should definitely give a try. Make sure you bring plenty of webbing to set up anchors.|
