Pretty sure they were bolts on top. They just had rusty hangers.

Best free route I've done in the VOG and a classic by any standards. For small-handed folk, I think the grade is more like a soft 11- I had solid hand jams the entire way.

Excellent pitch with the best rock in the VOG. If I did it again, I'd take: (1x) .4-.5, (2x) .75 (3-4x) 1 (2x) 2 (1x) 3 BD C4 sizes. 4 #1 Camalots will not go unused if that's a hard size for you. Anchors were decent looking 3/8" wedge bolts with homemade hangers (little rusty); a great community service would be adding chains (a foot or so chunks).
