Bouldery start on crimps on the arete. Clip two more bolts on the right of the arete, then rest up for the thin traverse through the fourth bolt. I thought this was the crux. Shares two bolts and an anchor with Three Amigos.
On the arete down from Three Amigos and Cannabis Crack
Six bolts to chains. Stick clipping the first bolt wouldn't be a bad idea.
Left Line is 5.12 Mission Control, Right line is 5...

I recommend stick clipping the first bolt. I believe for most people, the crux is from the ground to the third bolt.
Fantastic climbing and movement! Don't overlook this route, it's a must-do at the crag in my opinion.

A V3/4 boulder problem down low, and then its basically over, other than the fact that you could perish if you blew a clip...
A decent route that is in desperate need of re-engineering

Seems pretty soft over all... i agree with the v3/4 move down low... after that, it is 5.9 climbing... bolt spacing makes it a bit spicy... i certainly wouldn't want to blow a clip anywhere on this route... it is a fun route regardless of grade!! No one should change this route in the least! keep it how it is...

I've believe that Mission Control, 12a is doing the traverse right at the 4th bolt and linking into the finish on Three Amigos. This matches up with the originally posted description and feels like 12a. If done this way, the bolt protects the crux at the right traverse quite well. Fun slabby moves...and I hate slab! Straight up the arete is 11c, with the crux being the initial boulder problem. This version I would not want to fall on, fortunately its easy up there.
