This route flirts with the arete but mostly climbs the face just left of the arete. Plenty of side pulls lead through a couple of small bulges to the crux near the last bolt. The anchor placement feels a bit contrived between a good rest and what appears would be a couple more good moves.

5 bolts to a two-bolt anchor.
