If anybody has the FA info it would be great to have. This variation of P1 is much more interesting and adds a number of harder moves

The original direct was done by Kris Kline. The part with the bolt is actually on the double direct and was put in by Bruce Burgess. See description for Safari Double Direct.

Kris Kline's original version required double ropes and climbed as described to just below the bolt. From there you traverse hard right for about 10' the fire up some steep edges in a short leaning corner to gain the horizontal to move back left to gain the splitter crack through the bulge.
