As of 6/29/14 the first bolt has no hanger on it.
This was probably done intentionally by someone as there is plenty of gear to be had in the dihedral. Bring a piece or two for this section as this is the ~.10b crux of the route.
The 15' traverse left is pretty easy (~5.7). After that it's sustained, fun 5.9 for the rest of the pitch.
Second pitch is definitely worth doing. Slightly easier than the first and not as heady.
