Any beta for this route?

I have climbed up to Faith ledge and bailed. I am wondering the gear recommendations for the Red Dihedral section near the top - particularly gear needed and fixed gear. Other good info?

thanks
casey

i don't remember needing anything that i didn't use on the lower section, just nuts and small cams the whole way up the red dihedral as far as i can remember and there was a bolt or two but nothing other than that was fixed. have fun it's an awesome route, any other beta you want?

I don't know if you know this or not, but the route goes totally clean...please do not bring iron. I climbed it last spring and after we rapped we met a couple guys at the base who had a bunch of iron, so I'm not sure the word is out. Anyway, this is a beautiful Free route, and hammering on it is no different than chipping, and will destroy the route as a free climb.
The Red dihedral will take small stoppers and cams, and there are 2-3 bolts per pitch. If you're aiding, you will be able to run pitches together...the dihedral pitches are pretty short because of the free climbing.
