1-2 inch cams just below and just above the roof, not much down low. Anchor takes some creativity, small to med cams and nuts.

3 out of 5 stars Quick climb, complex anchor

I spent more time building the anchor than I did on the climb. I slung a small scrub oak 25 ft from the edge, used a small nut, #2 TCU and #2 Camalot for the anchor. The R section is 5.8-5.9, good pro just under the crux/roof - Metolius #3-5 (BD .4-.75). The climb was dirty and covered in spiderwebs.
