This route is an ok toprope and a very sketchy lead. There are a couple of bolts with no hangers and the protection is scarce to non-existant for the middle sections with plenty of groundfall potential.
If someone were to come in and replace the 1/4" hangerless studs with a couple of solid bolts it'd be ok, but keep it as a toprope for the time being.
I wish I had known this yesterday when I started up it, since my best piece of pro for the middle half of the climb was a small nut with the cable cinched up tight to a barely-protruding 1/4" stud.
Start in the big groove on the left of the wall. Climb up through a little overhanging section with some flared pods for holds, then go up the face and finish out on a juggy headwall.
There are 3 bolts with chains at the top, although if you really feel like leading it take some nuts and a couple small cams up to 1" or so.
