The bolts at the top of the first pitch are off to the left in this picture. The rope is attached to them. The problem was I climbed the 2nd pitch up to the first bolt, and then realized I couldn't go any higher. So I had to come down. That meant relying solely on that bolt since I didn't want to leave any of my gear to back it up with. ** I should add that in retrospect trusting your life to a single bolt is not a good idea.
