If the moves to the first two bolts seem too thin, I've seen people start left and clip right. Personally that seemed more awkward to me, but they seemed to feel more secure doing it that way.

Fun climb with a little scoot out left up the crack between the last bolt and the chains.

My partner knocked off golf ball size chunk of rock on this route...belay helmets are a good idea out here.

You can scoot left into the crack between the last bolt and the chain but if you go straight up to the chains it maintains the slabby character and is definitely the crux. Fun, thin, and balancy. A+ if you like slab.
