The bolts for Clincher Crack are way off to the left of this route. There are bomber placements for #4 and #8 hexentrics, enough to make a solid two point anchor. You might get some small stoppers or cams around to complete a three point anchor, or use one of the bolts for Clincher. Either way, two 4m/12ft slings should put your draws or biners at the very edge of the route. Watch for the rope locking on the crack and bring all the locking biners you think you'll need, plus a couple more just to be sure. Lowell's bouldering guide recommends long runners or an extra rope to set up top ropes, couldn't be more accurate.
