This is a line of two thin cracks to climbs just right of the columny A.C. Devil Dog (5.10d).
Using the bolts to climb this route will add a demension of interest, as the bolts are shared between this and The Moss Critique (the route immediately right of it) and are a bit of a reach to the right of the climb.
Think chimneying without the chimney and this will be your route.
5 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.
I wouldn't trad lead this, but if you're feeling psychotic, you could using small (up to 1") friends and nuts.

Followed up this one, but I'd consider leading it. Small gear can be found between bolts. One hard - solid 5.11 move low to the ground at the first bolt requires a very high left foot.
The remainder of the route felt like sustained 5.10+. Lots of friction, small crimps and some stemming. You can find some good rests by using the flared dihedral on the left, a few spots allow for hands free rests by lying back on the wall of the dihedral.
A little mossy - but the features that you need to climb the route are mostly clean.
