Although short, I found this to be a nice route with some interesting /technical moves.
The crux is establishing yourself on the face and then moving through very technical and thin climbing past three bolts.
Find the first line of 4 bolts to left of Ho De Dum.
The pro is 6-7 draws + an optional 0.75 -1" piece for the final run to the bolted anchor.

Personally, I thought the climbing was rather mellow until the third bolt, where you leave that little ledge rest and then fairly tame again once you've clipped the fourth bolt. Also, 5 bolts in all.
As for a grade, I didn't check this site to see what this route was before I got on it and am surprised the grade is as low as it is. I would have said 11d had someone asked me.

Well, forget that flat chip for the left hand at the crux - I leaned back on it to shift a foot, and both it and I went airborne.... The hold is now uneven and very sharp and thin. Thin enough to sever the skin off of "pinged" fingers.
The move is a lot harder now. As my partner said it - this is an "evolutionary" route....
Get on it with thick, fresh tips.

Crux is gnarly and still evolving. Pretty hard even at 12a if you asked me, but I'm not a slab master....
