If you liked the crux hold of this climb traversing right after the last bolt... it is now lying on the ground at the base. Coincidentally, if you are wondering of those old bolts will hold a lead-fall, the answer is yes.
This climb ruined my perfect streak at J-tree (300+ routes and counting at the time of the fall) and I took a short fall onto it. Remarkably, although much of the flake/rock shed, I don't think that the overall rating of the climb has changed. The resulting crux is different, but not harder, as a new hold appeared.
