Extra points for skipping the bolts and slinging the chicken heads!

Did a line ~ 10ft left of Bongo on gear. That lead was fun, not sure what that line is (bolt in the dish before the anchors, separate anchor from Bongo), not in guidebook or online. I'd say everything to the bolt is ~5.7, the move to and through the bolt to the anchors is tougher - 5.9ish?
