As was pointed out, the bolts stop about 2/3 the way up. Bring a few smaller nuts (1/2" ish), or run it out. I think the 5.7 rating assumes you use the arete, in addition to face holds.

The arete isn't worth it. The crack that's out on the face, though, is. You definitely want gear (to 1" if I remember) if you plan on leaving the safety of the ~5.4 arete.
