Seriously, this is sad. Asking for gear beta is one thing but beta on the climb in general? Have we no standards here people?
These standards are individual. I would never consider making a request like the OP here. For *me*, it would cheapen the ascent, and take away half the fun. But I have no problem with *him* climbing it in any style he wants.
Kind of brings to mind this thread: http://www.supertopo.com/climbers-forum/1961076/Trad-climbing-Or-is-it
