Use a #4 & #3 on the vertical beginning, up top (the traverse) is good pro with nothing bigger than a #2. At the very end you'll be glad to have a #3.

4 out of 5 stars Careful

Careful of the house owners. They've gotten pretty touchy about this area. Did this a while back, just thought I'd throw that out.

4 out of 5 stars Love crack.

This crack is a bit less burly than you would think. Low crux around 12' or so and kind of pumpy traversing the top. Topped out in the gap with a really long reach-off to a crack further back in there. Pretty damn fun climb though. I'd love to trad it soon.
