Excellent climb, nice and long, great position bring your camera for the top.
Stopping at the bolts is silly and would downgrade both the technical difficulty and the quality of the climb. They are next to a bomber nut placement and clipping them would be cheating in my opinion. They'd probably fail anyways. Plus you would miss out of a lot of good climbing.
Belay at a tree at the top of the cliff, and then walk climbers left down the hill to a series of ledges. From here you can do a single rap w/ a 60m or down climb. Do not use the staple bolts to climbers right... they were put in by "sport rappellers" and you probably won't get down in one rap... if you do you'll tear up your rope pulling it down.
