It is one of the best 5.8 in the state, solid and fun rock.
Protection is 9 or 10 bolts plus the anchor. Near the top there is a short traverse to the left with a bolt at the beginning of the traverse and a bolt at the end. The ending bolt seems to be at or slightly lower then the beginning bolt and is unnecessary. However, if you plan to clip it you should bring a double length quickdraw (or a regular runner). If you dont clip it there are only 9 bolts en route.
Extra bonus, if it is near lunchtime bring your lunch and eat it at the top of the climb, a nice little spot with beautiful views, though it has a somewhat a tricky rappel to get down.

Solid 5.8...it's a great lead at the grade. Even though it's solid 5.8, It's a really long route! Make sure you take some rests when you get a chance.
Moving around the bulge on the right side is a good idea. Up high, it seems like it's really thin at times, but there are always good hold when you step up. They are hard to see from below.
In my opinion, it's definitely better that Jet Stream.
