Not 100% sure but if I had to guess; cams up through 3 inch and small stoppers.

Can be toproped after climbing One-ten.

4 out of 5 stars Whew!

End of the day, but this one seems like it would be tough anytime due to the thin feet and rounded arete at the crux. Seems like it would protect pretty well and there is a chopped bolt at the crux.
