tricky & fun boulder start (less difficult if you stick clip the 2nd bolt), then easy climbing to the top

Stick clipping the second bolt with a draw definitely makes the clip easier.

Pull pockets to the second bolt then climb the ladder.

I have heard that this route is known to have sketchy anchors, but for what it is worth both anchors are spinning and one (the left) is fully rusted on its surface. The anchor bolts, however, seemed secure in the rock.

careful with the left hand two finger pocket. It tweaked my finger for awhile. Also, I watched a few climbers send this route last weekend and I didn't notice any of them using the ultra-good undercling to the left of the second bolt. It's probably a more thuggy beta for this route, so if crimps aren't quite your thing, then I suggest giving that undercling a shot.
