Description is accurate, rock is ok at the top, just needs more activity to clean off the looser stuff.
I thought the climbing was really enjoyable.
Just take gear to protect between the bolts and you won't be worrying about the slightly flaky nature of the rock.
How about a second pitch ?
Sure looks like there should be stellar climbing up that nose out the left side of the belay.

|A really fun, mellow route to round out a day at the Lotta Balls wall. Rock quality seemed pretty good, pro is great (it could be led quite safely without the bolts), and way easy for 5.8 -- I could believe 5.7 or even 5.6.|

Both bolts for the anchor are loose but there is a third bolt above it with some nylon tied from that to back up the anchor. Chains are good. I agree, could easily be led on gear.
Yeah, as mentioned above... looks like a second pitch could be added for sure.
