There are NOT 6 bolts. Just climbed this today. Four old bolts (but good enough) and steel shuts for the anchor. Ross must be talking about a different route. Decent route more like 5.8 though. Doesn't appear to get climbed much, I had to clean off a bunch of spider webs.

As of 26 Nov 2016, still 4 bolts + 2 rusted shuts for the anchor (but probably reliable). First hangar is loose, but functional. There is some loose rock that can be avoided and the moves are actually fun, but would not give it any stars. Did not find anything near 5.9 on the climb. 5.8 seemed more realistic.
