This route is a couple of cracks right (west) of Exorcist. The first pitch is pretty good, but the second pitch is pretty loose and wide. A #2 and #4 camelot should be sufficient to lead this second pitch safely. A better second pitch is to do is It, a nice 5.9 finger crack starting from the same ledge, two cracks left. The rap off Exorcist is easy and quick.

I agree with John except for the gear reccomendations. I suspect that wider gear than a number 4 could be useful. Don
