Photo was taken on September 16th 2012.  The second belay stance is at the second prominent 2nd ledge.  I would suggest doing it as a single long pitch with a 70m rope.  Rap both belay stations with a single rope and you're good to go.

Now it's a 2 pitch route, rap single 60m.

I loved this route! Very fun moves on a beautiful slab. The protection is where it should be to feel fully at ease with the climbing but not at all over bolted. You can do it in two pitches or like I did do it in one with a few longer slings to eliminate rope drag at the top. The mid way anchor is really helpfull for rapping with a 60 meter rope.
Someone (hint Manny) should post pics of this joyful gem.

Two bolts must have been added to the bottom of the climb since this description was written. There is no 45' runout to the first bolt. P1 is short and easy (5.6-ish). P2 is longer and more fun(5.8-ish).

2 bolts were added to the start to make it safer, as requested.

Great warm-up. Link it into once nice long pitch with a 60m rope and then make two raps down to the ground.

Can anyone attest to how many bolts there are in the entire climb? Is 11, as described, still accurate? I can't imagine that would be it for the entire length..
