I only counted 25 bolts, or should I say lost count after 25, was it recently retro-bolted? It did seem a bit run out in spots. . .

I counted 24 bolts, but, I think Kevin says 25 clips in another description. So, maybe 24 plus the anchors.
Note: you can rappel to Mantle Dynamics then 100 feet rap to the ground from that anchor.

This route description kinda lacks... How about:
Start as for Mantle Dynamics by pulling the fun mantle move onto the gigantic chicken head. Clip another bolt or two and veer right following the numerous bolts through a series of fun, positive moves in dishes and depressions in the rock. Near the top if you don't feel like clipping bolts through some nearly third-class terrain, you can traverse horizontally to the right clipping a lone bolt and the anchors atop the 5.7 hand crack route or move left to the anchors for Mantle Dynamics. A single 60m will get you down from either set of alternate anchors.

After the fun traverse moves this ones really easy. Wished I would have thought about going to anchors as Jason suggested as going to the top just adds another rap.
