This is what I used to send the thing. Two sets of C3 cams (only need one "000" and one "00"), Two green aliens, Three .3 camalots, Two .4 camamlots, One .5 camalots and one #3 camalot where you can place in the short 2 foot wide section half way up.

Description:

This is a new route that climbs a beautiful finger crack splitter that gradually transitions from tips to perfect fingers. The climbing is sustained lower 5.12/11+ with a 25 foot crux section. After the face crack it slowly transitions to the right where the dihedral opens up for the remainder of the climb. The climb may be a little finger size dependent. If you have big fat fingers the lower section will be much harder, but up higher you will benefit from it. I would like some feedback for the grade. I know what it felt like for myself but want to see what others think. Location: Right above easy rider, obvious dihedral above. Or to the left of broken arete. 60m rope will get you up and down. The first pitch is done and may go higher. Photos can be found at(too big to upload here) http://mountainproject.com/v/alpine-follies-hangover/107495776
