Hot Season was bolted and first climbed by Tyler Hoffart. The route is extremely loose; the times I've been on it, I've showered my belayer with small loose rock and grit accompanied by the occassional larger hold breaking off. The route is somewhat runnout between some of the bolts in the upper section where the rock is the worst quality. It's a bold route in the sense that when you are high above your bolt you don't know if the hold you are on will break off. There is still an unclimbed extension that continues through the roof at the top of the route.
Furthest right route on Fire Wall, route number 11 on the Fire Wall topo photo.
Bolts, missing the first couple of hanger, there are carabiners at the anchor.
About to get scared on 'Hot Season'

Knocked a couple of big blocks off of this route on lead this weekend. I'm not convinced that this route is one that will really clean up, the loose sections feel more like compacted dirt than rock. My honest advice is to avoid it unless you have nothing left to climb.
