Five bolted hangers, ring anchors, all new. A piece at the low horizontal crack is advisable for leading this line. Be aware of ledging hazard from third bolt. Setting top-rope from rings is very hazardous with no tie-in, done but not advised.
See 'Black Rain'. First two bolts provide the highest difficulty rating, if you stay directly in line along the bolts with no reaching in from the side. To do that, expect wide stemming especially toward the top.

There are a number of variations on this route. The lower section is where the better eliminates can be had Right of the bolts is roughly 5.9 Left of the bolts goes 10d/11ish IMO Taking the direct line up the bolts and avoiding the easier holds to the left and right is significantly harder (12a) and great fun.
