Good route, a little interesting in spots- could probably use another bolt or two, as the fall consequences in a couple of spots would be high.

The bolts on this route and the one to the left are a bit more spaced than other routes in the corridor, a couple of the clipping stances felt a bit awkward

Stout for a 5.9 lead, more like a 5.9+ pg13 or a 5.10a, agree with John and Doug it could use another bolt, awkward clipping stances, but cleaned up now and interesting movement.

Have any routes been put up between this and The CEL?

If so, this route has some super neat holds and moves, but a little scary coming up over the ledge to find the next bolt 5 more feet up.

If not, I have no idea what I climbed...

No, its called L2 because its the second route on your left you come to as you enter the corridor. I think Bonaire is now the 4th route.
