Several long quickdraws will come in handy.

Quelques dégaines longues vous seront très utiles.

Not the best route for new leaders. This is not a simple clip-up sport route. There is a lot of distance between bolts 4 and 5 and the moves in between are not straight-forward. One additional bolt would have made this route a lot more accessible to all leaders.

I agree, a bolt should be added on the traverse going left from the 4th to the 5th, or adding a really long perma on the 5th to clip before doing the tricky move going left would help.
