Like Big Fred and Francois this problem saw an unneeded retro-bolt. The problem was climbed as a highball/solo, and on gear protection (nuts and cams) for years before someone added a bolt after 2006. A bolt chopping may be in order. Having a bolt on top the Azian Boulder for top-roping purposes is reasonable, and for those not willing to highball/solo the crack, walk around and set up a top-rope for the route, leave it as a lead for those that don't require the bolts that you have added.
Azian Boulder. The problem faces the road, it is a very obvious plum line centered in the Original Garden. In the cave below this routes start there is problems. To the climbers right of Azian Crack Ed has a more difficult arete climb, and a 5.10+ face climb is tucked between Azian Crack and Ed's Arete.
Bolts need to go.
