Comments: Beware the loose chunk just off the bolts. Between the crux and the bolts a ledge runs perpendicular to the crack. On the right, a piece of it protrudes slightly as a flake. When I followed this pitch (mid march 2012) it was very loose. It was about the size of a large paperback novel.

Comments: Lower left crack (before intermediate ledge) is inward flaring, I think that's what the OP meant by 'harder to protect.

Comments: Is that a single carabiner clipped straight to a bolt?

Comments: Great route - I would add that the '15 feet' of unprotected climbing mentioned above has more like 20+ feet of exposure by the time you get to your first piece, thanks to the climbing starting with a roof 5 or so feet off the ground. That said, you can start the pitch with a 5.8 crack just left of the canary start, then move right directly into the bottom of the actual canary crack/dihedral.
