One fixed pin at the start, then I counted 5 bolts, plus 2 off-route bolts (missing hangers) slightly off-route to the left.

Anchor is 2 to 3 inch gear.

Used several medium cams, a big nut, and nut wires on the bolt with no hangar. Clipped one bolt on the route to the right. There's an unusable rap anchor up left from this route, with the bolts half pulled out.

The two-bolt route to the right of this is "Lizard's Leap" and is 5.9, and is worthy. The route to the right of That is "Fitchen's Folly" and is 5.7 and is also worthy...both are 1.5 stars out of four. If you are over here with a bunch of beginners, toss ropes on these to get more climbers on the rock. Lizard's Leap was my first 5.9 "follow," and I fell when I inverted a fingernail prying down i=on one of the edges I'd latched...blood everywhere...taught me a lesson about trimming the nails. I was 15, following Chuck Wilts..he laughed..said he knew what "that" felt like.
