Lots of cams from #1-#3 in addition to a standard rack. Tape is also a must if you value your skin.

Description:

The most famous crack climb in Colorado, a testpiece for all crack climbers. Scramble around the east flank of the rock to a large broken ledge that leads to the crack's base. The crack and it's difficulty are readily apparent above. Climb the 5.11a crack/corner to the roof. Swing over and jam a painfully thin and insecure finger crack up the over-hanging face above. The crack widens to secure hands above. Can be easily aided also (A1). Has an "official" rating of 5.13b/c.
