5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

If this was the route I was on.... climb giant jugs and huecos and sit in the ones you want if you need a rest. At the top it slabs out over a bulge and you can move slightly left to to a big jug over the lip, or do a funky press out right to gain the slab. Well protected and fun.
