The lower section of the purpose. You can make out the first few bolts as the climb moves up and slightly left.  Original 1/4" button head expansion bolt w/ Leeper hanger. The 3/8" plated wedge bolt was added later to make it safer but is very hard to clip if you're short. <br /> <br />A new bolt marked with a yellow X on the photo is located down from both bolts placed with the permission of Alec Sharpe (i.e., FFA of GI). The new bolt is easier to clip and won't interfere with your hands along the crimp rail.  Start of GI moves left out of the crack feature to the chalked crimp rail and then up and left again to the chalked horn. <br /> <br />Place gear in the crack if you're uncomfortable making the semi-reachy clip, or bring a stick clip.  Mammut Ring bolts in various states  La Sportiva Mirua
