The crux is between 2 and 3, and the 3rd bolt is pretty high. You need an attentive belayer for this one. The first positive hold is over the bulge and it isn't great. There is a really cool high reach to an undercling pocket near the top. This climb is worth it just to grab that thing. You can see it from the ground, and it is as cool as it looks.

Moving to that big undercling hold at the upper roof was the redpoint crux for me. This is a great route, more sustained and interesting than Second Coming. Getting over the bulge after the 2nd bolt is tough but there are good incuts to clip the third bolt from. The description mentions a right gaston, but there are a couple of ways to use the crux hold.
