This climb would be a classic in my book if it had two more bolts. Unless I missed something, even the easiest line to the one bolt, located perhaps five feet below the anchor, involves some moves that are certainly not give-aways and could lead to a truly inconvenient rescue scenario. (You'll know what I mean after you do the approach.) With the existing protection in place, this is more of a climb for somebody comfortable leading several notches beyond the grade and essentially soloing the climb to set up a toprope.

There is plenty of pro on the route, you sling the horn and then as you make the move around the corner there is a nice place for a cam, then a bolt. The natural protection available negates the need for any more bolts.
