Anyone familiar with Malcolm X at the Negress Wall? I was trying to do it but I'm not sure if I got on the right route... this is what I got on. There's been a bail biner or quicklink at the 4th or 5th bolt or so for the past ~8 months. I wanted to booty it but alas had to use it. The climb I got on (a friend got a pic, below) had two or three old-school hangars before the modern ones started. Looked like a TON of holds have broken off, lots of ligher-colored rock exposed. I gave a solid effort to pass the bail biner bolt but it just felt way more improbably than 12b (and I'm more of a technical face climber than a thuggy overhang climber)

Was I on course and just need to go back and pull harder?
