A fun pocket route on the far left of the wall. Follow pockets and edges to a crux near the top. Find the hidden pocket at the second to last clip, and crank to the anchors. 6 bolts...

Fun climb that gets harder as you climb. The crux is at the anchor.

Agree clipping anchor is the crux...

It sure felt to me like the crux was the slopey ledge below the last bolt before the chains. It is so chalked up, that is difficult to tell what's good and what's not. There is a really nice jug about 2-3 feet above the ledge, off to the left that I wouldn't have found without the proverbial 'tick' mark. (perhaps the hidden pocket in the route description?) The bolts are spaced pretty far apart for this wall, which makes it a touch exciting, but there seemed to be good clipping holds/stances for each of them. It is a great route though, and the climbing is smooth and thoughtful throughout.

There are two solid holds on the ledge above the anchor, if you climb past to get on these holds, clipping the anchor isn't bad. If you are really pumped though, this would add 4 to 6 feet to a fall. I don't think you'd hit the ledge but it'd be a nice ride...
