There has been bolts placed on this route, as well as chains. I didn't get on top to look at the top bolts, but the bolts placed for lead don't look like anything I've seen before. Could be fine but use good judgement. Aug 8, 2016
Lead bolts have been removed. Aug 14, 2016

They should never have been placed to begin with. Plenty of other crags in the area to lead climb. Aug 24, 2016
