There is/was/maybe a thread on this on NE Climbs, actually on falling aspirations, but I think that it was affected and the affected pro was replaced.

Climbed the first pitch recently. It's good thought provoking and fun all the pro was good and we replaced decades of tat on the anchor with something nicer. Pitch 2 had one newer and one old bolt on it and looked to be in fine shape.
