Cams up to #4; maybe doubles on the big stuff. Bring plenty (at least a half dozen) long runners to reduce rope drag.

4 out of 5 stars Get moving!

This route definitely rewards those who place less gear and move quickly. The overhangs start early and end late; gear can be finicky as well. I was 1 move away from a no hands rest when I weighted the rope, shame on me!
