The piton is fairly solid and the bolt is close enough that if you were to pull the piton during a fall you would still be fine.

Piton was replaced with a bolt in 2011. Piton pulled out on a lead fall. Bolt was placed because a new piton would have broken the flake, changing the dynamic of the route.

Shifting to headpoint in the middle of a Model Worker redpoint.

K Miller is about to clip an upside down knifeblade(left draw) and two opposed, brass, micro-nuts(right draw). This crux pro is all delicately slipped under a thin flake that eventually requires yarding on like the Incredible Hulk.

Only needed a small hit of traditude since there's an unseen bolt at Kirk's waste.
