Awesome route! Just as an update, there is no quicklink on the old bolt anymore, and the piton is bashed in so that you can't clip it. Bring a 0 TCU (.2 BD) and a small nut, the gear seems bomber. You can also try to sling a horn on the ledge above the piton, but I don't know how well that would actually work in holding a fall.
This route is not sandbagged at all, and feels pretty comfy as far as 5.9R goes.
Get at it!
