For Newbies... You can climb up the back end of this climb step across and top rope this for those that are not comfortable leading at any level. Be safe and extend your anchor to minimize drag.

Why go to the effort of bolting an easy route like this and then make it a solo to get to the first bolt? Bolts looked old and may need replacing (I'm not expert though). Chains don't reach the edge making for a hard rope pull. This could be a fun beginner lead if the hardware made it safe to do so. As it is stay off unless comfortable with basically soloing it (I didn't want to fall on the bolts).
