This is a great introduction to big wall climbing. The climbing is easy and there is lots of fixed gear. Don't bring a hammer. Maybe a hook or two but you don't really need them. The start of pitch 4, has three headless bolts, so you'll need hangers of some sort. HB offsets are crucial.

Superb line! Sees shadde all day so extra layer is nice. We fixed to the top of p3 and then went back and finishd in about 7 hours the next day. if lowering jumars down from p3 be careful not to get them stuck in the ramping crack system=SUCK! Rack=triples from .3-2 and doubles of 3-4, medium nuts and lots of offet brassies. SKY HOOK helps a lot for P8
The route is shaded all day, it made climbing it perfect with a long sleeve shirt. can easily be done in a day. It goes really fast due to all the fixed gear on it. On last pitch the "crux" placement before the last hook move. forget about a large tricam, just use an offset micro cam just below it.
