the 5.9 on the right side is missing the first 2-3 bolts. and the ones after are very rusted.

The whole block is a balanced pile of choss that is exfoliating on all faces. The 11C is Not a 3 star route, and getting it done without breaking a crumbling jug onto your belayers's dome, is probably the only measure of success in getting the route done. The 5.9 has terrible bolts all over it, many of which wouldn't hold a substantial fall, even if the rock did.
