Hey Mike, we definitely replaced all the bolts except for the goofy/non-critical directional bolt located at head hight. They are all stainless hiliti's but may be painted (can't remember). The crux bolt is a 5 incher and extends throught a hollow flake that the original bolt likely did not. Dec 16, 2012
As of 12/2012 it appears I Abuse Profen had the bolt upgrade; this route's bolts looked rusty. Either way thanks for the upgrading! Dec 16, 2012

Many parts of this route are very often wet, so save yourself the hike if it has rained in the last few days. Jul 11, 2012
