Now if I recall correctly, this was the TR/bolted line Doug was working on with Tim and Rich. They ran out of bolts or money or something and ended it early,
The difficult .11d / .12+ finish ought to be bolted.

7 bolts for the direct start, 8 bolts if you traverse in from the right off the boulder. Excellent route with a spicy mantel move to gain the anchors. Might want to stick clip 1st bolt.
