Recommended Gear

Below is listed some of the gear the SuperTopo team would take when climbing this route.

See topo for rack. Keep in mind that this rack is probably out of date. For 99% of walls, you want to make sure you use all the all the Top 10 Clean Aid Tricks and carry:
- offset micro nuts
- cam hooks
- offset small cams
- medium Peckers for hand placements

For pins, you can probably substitute a lot of the Arrows and Knifeblades for beaks/ Peckers/Tomahawks

If I were to do this route, I would start with what is on my typical "Rack for mostly clean routes" at this link Chris Mac's Aid Rack I would then look at the topo and load up on beaks, heads, etc

The How To Big Wall Climb Book has many suggestions for what is the latest and greatest aid gear.
