|Anyone been up the 10a finish mentioned in Reid? If so, is it as generously bolted as the rest of the route?|

Regarding, "Kudos to the FA for understanding the value in having a safe lead for mere mortals who want to enjoy a serene setting and some Tuolumne face climbing, at the same time."
Boltway is a retrobolt of Eunuch. So, I guess you can't thank the first ascentionist. As I recall, there is one old rusty bolt on Boltway and that is the lone bolt from the original Eunuch. The same guy who retrobolted Eunuch bolted a line next to West Country that was promptly chopped.
As far as the 10 pitch, it's well protected as I recall although perhaps not as generously bolted.

|I lead the 10 finish a few years ago, and the bolt was near my waist on the crux move. The crux I thought was very well bolted - and then after that, head to the crack, with gear placements.|

|Just so there is no confusion, Eunuch goes right, Boltway goes up. They do share beginnings, but if you're looking for runnout slab then you can climb anywhere above the Flake.|
