Classic Point Dume edge-pulling at an accessible grade. Be creative, the easiest line meanders quite a bit.
Bolted top-anchor. Use long anchor cord.
Lead bolts are push-button compression bolts and insufficient for lead climbing.

Second best route on the west face, for true to grade and more or less sustained difficulty.

Oh, those bolts aren't that bad. They look similar to the badly corroded terminals on someone's car battery. Just clip them and put your hand over them, if that corrosion bothers you. I've lead these routes numerous times and it's like leading many of the older routes a Joshua Tree that used to sport decrepit 1/4" button heads. It feels like soloing, with psychological protection.
