|Well bolted...are you kidding? If you blow the second clip you will deck. If you fall going for the good hold above the initial crux sequence you risk a thrashing on your knees and a harsh catch for your belayer. If you fall going for the anchors you will f$@k yourself up. Not to mention it's a sandbag. I don't really care that it's poorly bolted, or that there was some ethic that dictated "only 3 bolts per climb" I'm just warning other climbers that no, this is not well bolted.|

Great route with a solid boulder start. Love the pull through at the beginning and the thin face climbing. In my opinion if you finish right to the proper anchors you're selling this route short. Finish left on Power Snatch for a more consistent rating.
I think saying the route isn't bolted well is probably correct. There are some potential injuries before you've clipped the second bolt. Either stick clip the second of be very sure of your abilities. The anchors to the right do meander a little off route but the 5.6 rating to them is about right. Left will present a 5.10b-ish finish.
