Easy climbing gains the business where the wall becomes steeper and blanker. Strenuous pockets, crimps, and liebacks (crux) lead to a system of juggy pockets below a final bulge. Confusion abounds here as the last bolt seems to suggest a direct finish, whereas easier but still difficult climbing leads a couple feet left of the bolt (you can still reach right to clip the bolt) to flakes and the anchor.
I thought that I might have cheated by going left at the last bulge but later TR'd the direct finish and couldn't for the life of me figure it out (given its grade). Vertical and blank with nothing to even clip the last bolt off of. I think if the direct version is the way to go, the final bolt would (or should) have been several feet lower. Some rock scars in here suggest that another possibility could be that some holds have broken. Maybe someone else who knows the route could comment on the finish?
