If top-roping I recommend clipping the climber's rope to the last bolt to keep it from sliding over an edge when the climber falls, or use very long slings to extend the anchor point past the edge.
While this climb is relatively short, it is powerful and has no rests- it is full value. The crux is at the 4th bolt but all the moves leading up to it will tax you.
The SMC hangers on the lead bolts are the newer stainless steel ones, not the ones that have a reputation for breaking.
