you could get in cams up high if wanted, looks like the anchor was intended for walk off, someone added quick links to the hangers.
I would recommend some cams or TR this sparsely bolted route.
It is a fun but contrived and dangerous route, not too hard to get up to ledge passing 2 bolts, but if you don't place a cam under a flake, it is 15' till next bolt with ground fall potential, then the crux is cool, but if you fall before clipping the next bolt you will hit the ledge. without cams for the flaring hand jam, a fall between last bolt and anchor will also place you on the ledge as well.
