On the right hand end of the wall there is right leaning corner which slabby, colorful, and fuzzy. The two bolts that protect this line appear to be just slightly older than the rock itself. But who knows. They look like welded rod. They also appear to be some sort of gluein, though they may just be pounded. I haven't found time to investigate, but am intrigued...

Those rings are so shitty and the climb is very dirty. Climb the line to the right instead.

In the early 1980's this was the premier challenging route; it was originally called, "On Wisconsin".
