Rossiters Boulder Canyon book says "Thom Byrne FA 1988, First pitch and anchors added by Richard Rossiter and Thom Byrne 1997"..... Seems weird that you'd put a couple bolts and an anchor past where you actually climbed on the FA.... i asked Bob Horan about the route, long before any of this came up because i was interested in checking it out. He told me that he had tried freeing it in the '90s but never could do it clean.

If i had to take a wild guest, maybe RR and TB placed those bolts at end of traverse and anchor, to setup Fallen From Grace "12D project"...
