4 bolts and gear, stick clip first bolt.

This line doesn't look like much from the ground but man it flows really well. Fun route that I'll definitely do again and recommend to others.

I second Greg's sentiments - way more fun than it looks. Great ride from start to finish!

If the rope keeps getting in your way for the crux, a 0.5 or 0.75 on a long runner in the obvious seam below the first bolt will get the rope out of the way.
