I did this "variation" in about 1987. Don't remember seeing any bolts... but I do remember the crack got really wide up top.

It is one crack right of Best Crack in Minnesota. bolted anchors.
has large semi detached flake that has to be stood on to reach first placement.

In a horizontal I found a nut Curt love thought might be his
as was his high point. And I still have the tweaked Hb 7 curve nut. Truly a bomber
