A couple of things to settle here.
The climb just left of Weak Nuts is Numb Nuts (two newer bolts just left of Weak Nuts up to a flake(gear) then finish on upper crack of Weak Nuts.
The next climb to the left is Rhumb Line with a lonely bolt about 30 ft off the ground climb past that for about 15 ft to another bolt at a stance a bit in the black moss to the right(both just replaced 7-24-14)then run it out straight up to a crack just left of weak nuts(gear) and to the rappel anchor(tree) on weak nuts.There is no two bolt anchor for this climb.
Two ropes to rappel.
The next line to the left is Vector.That is the line that climbs a black mossy streak passing three 1/4 inch bolts on the way.Hard to see from the ground.
You can see the first one from the ground just up and right of the first bolt on Lost arch.
Lost Arch has a low stainless bolt just above a small overlap.The second bolt is quite a ways up through the crux.The third is just behind a small tree growing out of a big pocket then a fourth straight up to a two bolt anchor to the right of a rotten flake.
The next climb is Found Arch then Groov-in.
