Given the bolted belays and the amount of protection bolts on the pitches I'd dare to say a rack of singles would work for this route. I can't think of a pitch that doubles were placed on. One thing that consistently stuck out to me while on the route was the absurd amount of gear I had on my harness while arriving at each belay, which was a set of doubles to 2" with a 3" and 4" singles.

Pitch 8 of Blake's description goes completely free at around 11b, look for the fingers/tips jams in the corner formed by the roof and face. A much better alternative then aiding through, if you still have the strength left. Amazing route!
