Gear info

Due to the current amount of fixed gear, no hammering is necessary. The pitches now go at C1f (P1), C2f (P2), and 5.8. The largest cam used was a .75. Two sets of hybird aliens are useful but having the smallest SLCD's is also a good idea (Black Alien, #00 Metolius, #000 BD C3). The third pitch is very chossy and takes small nuts (#1-4 BD) and/or cams.
