I climbed Prestidigator, which shares the start of Fragments of Floyd. The 1st bolt is missing. there are two empty holes...can anyone comment on the empty holes?

Fragments of Floyd climbs past three bolts directly under the shared belay chain on Prestidigitator above - Prestidigitator starts around a bulge on the right and then traverses left and up. Fragments goes direct/straight up a little further left. They do not share any common pitches, just that first belay.

Fragments was power drilled (Bosch 36V Lithium SDS+) (with Park & CATS permission/authorization) with 6x1/2" bolts very carefully placed to create a safe and fun lead.

I'd conducted research with Hilti directly on establishing a minimum standard for bolts in the park and it's specific variation of Navaho sandstone.

A real shame if someone's stripping bolts. It costs significant time and money to establish climbs, besides spoiling other climbers access to great routes.
