The crack is not a nice splitter to start; it's a seam that is mostly knifeblade wide with a variety of wider pods. Halfway up, it widens to fingers then thin hands. Gear can be tricky to place at the bottom. The first ascent used a #1 stopper, #1 Peenut, mid-sized RP, orange TCU and #1 camalot, but other things might work too.
The tiny nuts are both placed above a ledge and there is ledge-fall potential if they pull as you climb by them. Because the climb is so close to Beaver Buzz and it's easy to TR from that route's anchor, it didn't seem right to use more bolts for pro here near the thin seam as anyone uncertain about the gear can easily check out the climb on TR instead.
