VERY well protected, nice route for beginning leader at the grade. A litle dirty with lichen and road dust but overall a fun route with good holds and options the entire way up.
First bolt is an easy 5.6 towards the right side of the face, then move up left towards the 2nd bolt. No real crux, just fun, well-protected moves the entire way up.
We rapped down from the 2 bolts at the base of the chimney and kinda barely made it to the ground with rope stretch on a 70m - recommended to walk off to the east after you top out through the super easy chimney
Face right of the large roofs, just left of the left-facing corner. (Will add pics next time we drive by.)
6 bolts to 2 bolt anchor (there was another bolt leading into the easy chimney above)

Personally felt it was over protected. And the last bolt above the belay station is really not neccessary. Overall fun and quick.

Did this climb the other day. I am not sure I would call 6 bolts on a 125 ft climb well protected, there were a few areas were a fall would have gave you a few bounces on a pretty jagged rock. However all the moves were solid and the spacing on the bolts made you have to think about each move before you made it, not real hard but added the "meatball special" factor to it. Probably not a lead for a first timer.
