Whether you learn to crimp on this or not, it will definitely bite your finger tips. Ouch!
Follow 5 bolts up steep, sustained and sharp edges. Although the bolts are straight up and down, (how does that happen?), you might want to try to route-find a little. The technical crux is probably getting to and past the first bolt.
You will find this route squeezed between Solid Gold and My Laundry up a faint rust colored streak.
5 old 5/16" button heads, they still seem pretty good by Josh standards and a two bolt belay / rappel anchor with chains. The hangers on this anchor are rusty, cracked leepers. Lower off with one 60 meter rope. Most mortals will consider stick clipping the first bolt.

Probably 2 or 3 stars out of 5.
Giving it only 1 star on this site is kinda harsh (even if the route is harsh on your fingers).
