The runouts are part of the radness of that climb! Looking down at your last draw 20 feet below and the ragin river beyond. Its pretty cruisy, I'd say bone it out. If not, maybe some finger size pieces here and there?

Hey bearbreeder you probably won't need any gear as this is the easiest multipitch around even by beginner standards and there is only one crux move on the entire climb with a bolt above your head. If you have led any single pitch on squamish granite you have nothing to worry about. Have fun it's a beautiful spot.

Agreed. Super casual. Don't bother with the gear.

Hard move is 1 .9 move on the last pitch. It is an abrupt bit of technical (but only one move and then casual again) in the midst of cruiser-ville.

I used to take a single #.75 or 1 camalot for a horizontal crack on the middle section of the climb. My (somewhat suspect) recollection is that with that piece, there are no run-outs longer than about 15 feet.
