What I would take isn't really important because I know what the route is like, what gear works for me, and what to save for the top of pitches..........first hand beta, like you have and Ivan has.

What I would recommend to a first-timer with limited aid experience is lots of rack. They want to have a range of stuff left at the top of every pitch because they have no idea what gear will go in. Inexperienced people probably shouldn't be running it out, because they may not know the difference between a bombproof piece and something which could blow when they top step.

Like you said, Rod, lots of #3 RPs, but also a couple each of the three smallest C3s, a couple of extra yellow aliens for the pitch to the roof, and enough biners to clip all that stuff as pro to avoid running it out like some yankee hero.
