The crux of this route is between the second and third bolt. A fall here could be painful due to a the jagged rock right behind the climber. It might make for a better top-rope. This becomes a harder climb without stemming in the chimney.
It is the first bolted line to the left of The Chockstone Arete. It has a top anchor.
5 (or 7) bolts.

I believe this route has six bolts...the guidebook says "eight" and MTN Project says "five". There are a couple of nice little shelves to get on top of this route.

This has 7 bolts (I climbed it 7/12/11). 2 more bolts might be added to improve safety sometime in the future.

I found the location of the second bolt to be quite poor. As it is, one must enter into some of the crux moves before reaching the bolt. With that fin of rock in the landing zone one could easily get seriously hurt trying to make that clip.
It should be moved down about 15 inches. I wouldn't add any bolts though. Just relocate the second. There is a good #0.75 Camalot before the third bolt.
