Many mid-size stoppers (#6-8 Black Diamond), as well as an assortment of other gear up to 3." Hexes are helpful for the second belay. There are a few variations, some of them better protected than others
Look up at the Book, see the amazing backwards J. Do a first pitch to the ledge just right of its terminus (5.7). Pitch 2 traverses into the finger crack (10a) and goes up and up and up until a sloping ledge with a slight pod. Pitch 3 goes up the crack for 20 feet, then either traverses right and up (10a, slightly runout) or straight up the crack (11b, thin). Belay on a good ledge or continue up and left (5.5) to the Cave. One last exit pitch gets you on top.
