Although has been lead trad, the trad version uses the arete in one spot. So....I'd say this is a good use of bolts. Every bolt is perfectly placed to protect each pumpy move. Eat some wheaties, do some pullups, come on out and get this route...it is fun, fun, fun. Nothing mysterious about the moves, just pumpy. I pumped out and fell off below the roof :-(, so had to take the redpoint.
