A question about the route Poontang, regarding the protection on pitch 2:<br>
<br>
I'm guessing the bolts marked here are for the end of P2 of Poontang after the last traverse to the left.  Poontang is 5.10, grade III in Hill's guide.  These bolts are about 30 feet right of the bolts at the back of a huge ledge (end of pitch 2 for both Water Stains & Cave Route).<br>
<br>
For Poontang, Hill's guide states "<em>Several small pitons might be reassuring on the second pitch.</em>"  Anyone know whether that is still the case?
