Begin by using big, positive holds past the first bolt to a ledge. A tricky, strenuous crux awaits up a vertical section to another "ledgy" bit and a good rest.
Another cruxy section to another rest. Another cruxy section. Another rest. Repeat.
The total bolt count on this route is 25 plus anchors, although several of the bolts can be profitably skipped (the route was equipped ground up by Jason Stevens, presumably using a Willy Stick which accounts for the closely-spaced bolts).
You may also want to reach down and unclip some of the bolts once you get a higher bolt clipped because, near the top, you're pulling up a lot of rope and the less drag the better.
Note that the route is longer than half a 60m rope. A new, 70m rope barely reached (there was about 2 feet of rope left on the belayer's side when the climber was on the ground). There is a midpoint chain anchor to accommodate shorter ropes.
There is also a chain anchor midway up the route that can be used to lower off the rope with a single 60m rope.
