10 bolts to a two bolt anchor with rings. It shares an anchor with Dog Breath.

CONDITION REPORT 
This has the worst rap rings condition I've seen. Each ring is worn half way through, in two places. Obviously top roped to death. I know nothing about replacing them but would chip in to help replace them.

Great route and would enjoy doing it again, but personally I wouldn't rap on those rings, let alone TR or lower.

The rap rings look good now. The crux on this would be easier, and less risky, if you are tall. The crux is one move but not very easy.
