Very aesthetic rock. Looks like the work of a sculptor. There is a bolt to the right that appears to be an orphan. There are some bolts that diagonal up to the left that appear to be a 5.9 variation, mentioned in Mayr's guidebook.
It's the only 5.7 on the wall and goes up just left of a groove.
About 4 bolts.

I did this onsight and went up the left close to the 5.12, definately felt more 5.9 than 5.7. Its cool that you can climb two different routes on the same bolt line for sure.

Confirmed 4 bolts with chain anchors. Our team of rock-stars didn't use the bolt right of the crack; rather just climbed it direct and to the anchors.
Optionally the bolt-line that traverses up and left is a bit of a quandary and not listed in the Mayr guide. Perhaps Jack can shed some light on what the route is called. The traversing line seemed about 5.7 as well, 8 bolts to chain anchors above a very grainy and dangerous 5.12.

This is my favorite easy climb at NJC. The aesthetics of the rock makes this one worth doing, even if you climb 5.12. Fun climbing doesn't hurt too!

I loved this lead, I did it twice.
puzzled at the traverse route, looks like it thins out in some spots.
