Not really worth the bolts.

Walk up into a little hole 6' up then up a ramp to a bolt. Probably 5.4 and easier the higher you go. Ok if you are introducing someone to face climbing and want to TR it. The walkoff is no walkoff. You can downclimb to the climbers left a little and squeeze through some boulders to the north or go east, north then west to the downclimb place. I would doubt this climb alone would warrant the downclimb required.

A good 5.6 lead, and then set up a TR for Bonny's Boo Boo.
