I am confused after ascending this route today. There are 8 bolts not 7 and what I climbed was a steep awkward face with the anchor off, lower and to the right,on the side of the formation. Definitely did NOT share an anchor with Star Dancer at the top (as wrongly stated here and in Burr and Busse) and was not slabby though it did ascend a water chute. Had to be JFB though as it was the only route between Star Dancer and Make Believe? This route also felt hard for the grade (though I know Magna Carta is a somewhat stiff crag)with a real stinger of a crux move and some loose crystals (broke off two) and took an awkward whipper. Burr and Busse rarely gets things wrong but either I'm really missing something or there is a mistake here... Any clarification would be appreciated.
