Description 

Bangkok is the third route from the left at the Upper Utah Wall. It's a pretty fun and consistent climb that has good edging and some slabby feet. On my way to the third bolt, I found it easier to just make another move or two and clip the bolt than waste time and energy trying to wiggle a cam in the shallow, horizontal cracks. You might deck if you fell pulling rope, though.

Protection 

Three bolts and anchors. You might want a small cam to protect between bolts two and three.

Yeah, I wouldn't screw around with wasting time and energy placing a poor piece of gear in those horizontals. The moves to the 3rd bolt aren't too difficult.
