This was more than 10 bolts, but the top is easy (5.4-5.6?) so you can just run it out.

There is a bolt above the anchors that allows you to top it out; do it! The view of the entire canyon is well worth the extra bit of climbing. Just be careful not to kill your belayer with any of the loose rocks that might be up there. There is not another set of anchors though, so you'll have to down climb to clean the route.
