I lead this onsight belayed by Kevin Klim, all on cams. The route is very protectable with a good cam placement in front of you for every move. I first thought the need for the bolts was that perhaps the flakes and edges were loose or weak. But that is not the case. I found solid cam placements everywhere I wanted to place a cam. I recommend to other climbers to dispense with the quickdraws and enjoy this modest challenge on gear--it is fun and fairly straightforward.
