According to the last update in December, a lot of the top rope bolts were removed. Does anyone know if they have been replaced? I assume so, but want to make sure before I go.

I had actually reached out to Bay Area Climbers Coalition about this last May. Bay Area Rock lists bolts at the top of those climbs so I was surprised to find them missing. I was told

The bolts you are talking about at Goat Rock were removed because you are supposed to sling that large bolder instead of using actual bolts - we didn't remove them but we heard this was why there were removed.

Great roof bolts are still there, as well some bolts for the side routes. There is a single lone bolt that you could hook up to for the swiss cheese routes

As of yesterday, there was only one bolt above the roof route. No bolts for the easier stuff on climbers right. We slung the boulder on top but you need a long piece of webbing.
