This route has 9 bolts, but its ideal to either skip, stick clip, or back clean the first bolt to keep the drag down.

edit:

upon further reflection I think that this is 5.12a if you avoid the obvious boulder problem on the face above the start by going left (which most do), but it's every inch of its 4 stars and absolutely worth the slog up the hill!
