Aid solo first ascent

Description 

This route has yet to see a true first ascent, so for now it goes at A0. After the initial 5.9 start you move into the changing corners area and your first bolt. Follow 4 bolts (obvious crux) to another good crack system and continue up to the anchors. It's a little sandy higher up. The route DOES NOT continue past the anchors as I ran into very soft rock and couldn't get any bolts to tighten, even though you see one bolt DO NOT continue unless you accept the consequences or have your own drill. This route was put up Aid solo from the ground up. Can someone stronger than me get first ascent? Two ropes needed to rappel off the route. Probably could go free at 5.12-

Location 

Just around the corner from Legacy behind the detached tower.

Protection 

Standard desert rack, plus 4 quick draws for the bolts
