P1: Straight up until right before the anchor where the bolt line deviates slightly to the left.
P2: Straight up until you reach a series of horizontal seams where the bolt line veers to the right.

P1: 14 bolts leading to a 2-bolt anchor/rapp station.

60m rope should be fine, but 70m isn't a bad idea.

Your bolt ladder is still a project?

Do believe the aid rating system starts out at C1 and is given the C for "Clean" or "Hammerless".
If the pitch required hammering, whether to place a bolt or a piton, it is given the A rating to differentiate the two styles.
Most bolt ladders That require no additional gear, hooks, or pitons, are usually rated A0!!!
Just to clarify any confusion on this wonderful ladder. Good safe way to introduce oneself to aid climbing.
