|Thin 5.10 moves with close bolts followed by a bit more spaced 5.9 moves once you get up to the bolted line|

This is a fantastic route! Slopy crimps just deep enough to open hand all the way -- this is slab climbing at its finest.
HOWEVER, if you are not comfortable with the runout nature of YV / TM climbs, there are two sections of this route on which you will feel very uncomfortable. The last bolt of pitch 1 to the anchor bolts is 20-25(?) feet of slopy footholds. It's more positive than the 5.10 section below, but it's... thrilling. A fall here would *not* be fun.
Additionally, bolts 2 -> 3 on pitch 2 is also pretty runout. It'd sure be lovely if someone added just two bolts to these sections. I'd do it but I hear it's a faux pas to bolt over somebody else's route >_<
