This line may well have gone as a pure trad line, but the gear is really thin at the start (also the crux), so the bolts were added to make it a safer lead.


This is on the right side of the main wall.

The two bolt are absolutely needed. The line is stiff enough without having to wander over to the crack to place gear.
