Rad route, really not much required in the way of gear. Placed a #1, #.3 and a #.75 on pitch 4; my .75 was placed right next to a bolt so even that piece wasn't required. We removed some aid tat from the crux section not sure why it was left there... Took the short walk off.
what a great route, a few to many bolts on it, there are two that should not be there but all in all a very worth while route. 2nd and 3rd pich can be combined, double ropes help a lot on this climb. Decent 5.8
what an excellent climb... however... it would be much better were if left in something resembling its original character by local guides cum retrobolters. protection used to be somewhat mind-blowing, but now it is bolts, bolts and more bolts. several bolts should be removed, including one less than two feet from an excellent 1/2" crack and a duplicate anchor ca. 4 feet from the third belay. the "5.4" scramble up to the first belay has had two completely ridiculous bolts added, as well. well worth doing... a crying shame that this excellent route has been brought down to the lowest common denominator.
