The "triangle hanger bolt" is a triangular glue-in eyebolt, about 30' from the top on a ledge. You may be able to actually rap off of it, especially if you put on a quicklink.
The route itself has marginal pro, at best it takes just nuts and a #1 C4 on route and there is a spot for a thread-through about 10' from the top of the route which protects the topout if needed. The holds are really there, but the gear is sparse. I used a nut and a #1 C4 on the the wall all the way up to the ledge with the bolt, should have just soloed it.
Also, the anchor on top takes #2-#3 C4 really well.
