Climb a flared offwidth, protected by two bolts, to the face above. The climbing on the arete above is a little sporty, particularly when climbing the twenty feet above the last bolt to the anchors.
Just right of the namesake crack, Stoned Wheat Thin. Starts by climbing a flared offwidth, protected by two bolts.
8 bolts and anchor.

It's been a while since I've done this route, but my recollection is that the run out, while spicy, is on easier climbing. The crux is lower down and well protected.

The runout on this climb is dumb and contrived. It's basically a sport climb, except someone forgot to place the last two bolts. IMO, it doesn't make sense to have bolts 10 ft apart on 5.7 terrain and then bolts 25 ft apart on 5.8 terrain.
You could have the same number of bolts, just spaced more logically, and this route would not be runout at all.
