The first five bolts take a line just left of Empty Rhetoric. The climbing is a little devious getting from the first to the second bolt; if you're in the wrong place, it may be hard to clip the second bolt. The climbing eases up once past the second bolt.
Once on the large sloping ledge above the first five bolts, sling one the chains on the anchors for Empty Rhetoric and continue on past five more bolts to a second set of chains. On this latter section, stay out of the corners for a cleaner line, and at the fourth bolt above the sloping ledge, move right over the roof to find the next and last bolt before the final chains.
One can also break up the climb in two pitches by stopping at Empty Rhetoric's chains -- this reduces rope drag somewhat and makes for better visuals for the belayer, but doing it in one pitch is the way to go if longer draws are used.
