A long pull to a poor hold and then a high step up to the left see's youto the first bolt. There isa good hold over the bulge if you reach far back and right. However I clipped the third bolt from the left by doing a balancy move up to the left and then reversing...

Nothing like 6c, probably 6b. Much easier once the best holds have been identified.
