Great route, wish I could have hung on longer following it. The roof is completely horizontal, and the crack through it starts out with perfect hands and gradually widens to #3 Camalot size wide hands/tight fists. Couple of cams in each size from #1 camalot to #3.5 Camalot should do the trick. The original approach pitch to the hanging belay below the roof is unpleasant - it involves some aiding through a couple ancient .25 inch bolts. Someone backed up the belay with a new bolt though. To descend with one rope, from the anchor above the roof continue up and left about 25 meters to 2 new bolts with rap slings. Photo of Skip Garibaldi taken by Craig Clarence, May 2003.
