A bit loose getting to the first crux at the fourth bolt (10c). The climbing then improves as you climb a bulge pass the last three closely spaced bolts (it is possible to clip two of them of a stance).
About 20 feet to the left of portent.
11 bolts to chains.

This was a surprisingly fun climb. Definitely not as sustained as the Verdict but possibly a bit more technical? Plus there is a nice rest where you can totally recover before pulling the 11a crux at the top. Very well protected by bolts except for a 15 foot gap between the second and third bolt on easy (5.6/7) terrain that can be protected with a bomber yellow #2 BD. Although the climbing is easy here, I recommended bringing the cam because the rock is a bit loose (only place on the route that I found suspect).

I liked the climb quite a bit. It seemed harder to me than e.g. Foreplay. I would rate it at 11b/c, am surprised at the 11a rating. Either stuff broek off or I was getting really tired at the end of the day! Both cruxes seemed pretty technical and "sequency".
