|This is to the RIGHT of the Bolt Route (not the left as the description indicates). Amazing Face is the first route to the left.|

|That was nice that someone over the years added 3 bolts to this route, but who the heck stole the hanger from the first one?! Edwin Drummond bolted this on lead with a hand drill and named it Earthcling in 1984. The name should be changed. He's a burly Brit that calls it 11b.|

All bolts were replaced on this route as of 8/31/13. The previously existing bolts were all 5/16in threaded studs and showed signs of bending and possible cracking. Not the right kind of bolts for rock climbing. The first bolt with missing hanger was actually a 3/8 split shaft which pulled with little effort.
All bolts were replaced with 6" stainless glueins.
