Don't remember much about the route except that my leader was raining chunks of lichen down. It was a very icky climb.
9 bolts for the face and large pro for the start

This is a great route. The bottom section has a little lichen negotiation but all the holds are clean enoughto use. Watch out for the small wasp nest in the middle of the route. If you leave them alone they will leave you alone. It is inside a pocket and fairly easy to see. The middle section gives you a little exposure over the gully. The upper part is, as Slater says, beautiful. Clean and very fun on solid rock. The anchors are actually inside the cave. Three bolts riggeed for rap. Rap into the Gully with a 60M rope.
