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.
