6 bolts, use a sling on the last one to avoid rope drag. Edited to say - you really want a couple cams, the last 15 feet is otherwise unprotected. One #1 and 1 #2 Camalot should do the trick.

4 out of 5 stars Sweet Route

Awesome route. There's jugs if your patient enough to look for them. Bring #2 and #1 C4s for the top, and/or a 2ft sling for the last bolt.

3 out of 5 stars Great climb!

Follows a crack. Not all the move are crack moves, but they are some really nice ones. Clip the pin between the third and fourth bolts if you are scared of falling right at the crux.
