|OK bolts. At least one rusted quarter incher and some sort of drilled head? Most of the other bolts looked alright, but definitely not new bolts here.|

Agreed with Ryan ^^^, the bolts are... interesting in sections, but I think most everything is safe enough. Bring the rack to supplement bolts, maybe just a single set to 1" on Lichen Us itself.
A 70m rope will see you to the base of Gutenberger from the topmost anchors (you rap a different route). It was a circuitous rap in our instance, but it is possible and belay stations are readily picked out on the way down. Attempting this in the dark without knowing where the rap stations are, however, may not be safe.
