A retrobolt has been added at the top of this route to facilitate toproping off of the Spring Break anchor. What do you think the first ascentionists would have to say about these uneccesary bolts?

Lame.

I found this route to have good movement on TR; Leading the rig would require a hefty sack of sorts and good gear fiddling.

Agreed. Pretty lame to add bolts (one on route to left, one on route to right of SB) for top-roping ease on proud trad lines.
