This short route is really good. It starts out with a thin corner, followed by a cool traverse, and ending with a short wide section.
Walk off or rap from the tree.
Gear to 4". Tree anchor at the top.

It looks steep and strenuous, but there are good footholds.

This was a really nice climb. I would recommend it for sure, I found the flake to be easier than I expected, but the start harder.
Cams - 4"

As many people have mentioned, there are excellent feet at the undercling/traverse section, and I will echo that point. One thing I struggled with is the pro once you pull the undercling roof section: all my #3s were tipped out and my #4s were horribly overcammed and likely to get stuck. I think it's worth mentioning that a 3.5 cam would protect the upper flake section much more adequately.
Furthermore, extend your pieces on the traverse with draws. A piece of mine walked and it was a b**ch to retrieve. No #5s are needed for this route.

Fun route. Getting established in the undercling was the crux for me; after you pull around to the flake the climb was a cruise. I thought the pro was great, if you slung it well. The undercling takes a bomber hand-sized cam, and a #3 fit great deep in the flake (definitely get it way back there--wouldn't want to fall on a large cam placed near the thin edge of the flake). Save a #4 for the fist crack up top.
