Harper on Electric Gypsy Moth, a climb well worth ...
This route is a great line and has fun position all the way to the top. The crux is moving over the first bolt.
5 bolts to anchors. A #0.5 Camalot can be used to protect the opening moves in getting to the first bolt.
This route is on the Southwest face of Blair I. You can find it by climbing the first pitch of Le Petit Arbre
and then traversing south then around the corner till you see an obvious arete with bolts going up the face. Alternately, you can scramble up to the climb from the South.

Good eye Zac, this is one of your best. The crux is definitely the first few moves up and around the prominent corner (well bolted, although one might want a small cam behind the large flake at the start) until the face is approximated. It's a pebble peppered cruise from there.
