Kind of a steep start. I thought the crux was between the first and second bolt.
After the sixth bolt there are some small cracks. Either place some pro here and head up over the "summit block" (5.7) variation to the anchors (bolts with rings) or traverse right (5.6).
First bolted route to the right of Rat Race.
Descend by rappel.
Six quickdraws; cams in the 0.5 - 0.7" range if taking the 5.7 "summit block" variation

Nice climb. The crux is early, as there are no hands for about 10 ft, but great feet that you can balance your way up with.
The end is a bit run out, but really easy compared to the start. Tops at super solid chains but top-rope tends to get dragged into top crack off to right which is annoying (friction), but not hazardous.
