This route has had bolts added subsequent to the first ascent. Rojo was established ground up with a hand drill from stances. Trad ethics RIP.

All three pro bolts on this one looked original to me. Whatever extra bolts may have been added at some point are long gone now. Impressive route, wish there were more like this one in the canyons.

3 bolts total and as Handren puts it in his guide, still "hair raising". Clearly bolted on lead - I don't think this has been retro'd, but Paul, you would know.
