I was there on June 23 2013, and counted 34 pairs of bolts (some were in groups of 3). That being said, many of these would not likely be used for climbing due to their placement. (8 or so pairs) I.E. they are not at the top of any climb, some were simply in flat exposed rock surface fairly far from any vertical. I can only imagine that many of these bolts are used to teach how to build an anchor or to teach belay skills.

The river was very high on the day we went, so we didn't attempt to climb routes on the more Northerly end (there was no landing). It did however look like there were good places to practice or learn to lead if the river was lower.

Currently in the approach description on this page, it indicates that you should go Left towards the river. There is no river to the left, go right. (Climb up the hill immediately in front of the parking lot, when it gets flat turn right towards the river, stop when it gets very steep)
