Is this common? Is it a way to spot the bolt while on route? Seems a little excesive to me!

Looks like a clear sign of color blindness to me.

No, it's just camoflauged in nicely with the surrounding rock.

Obviously there is no need for a bolt here with the cam placement in that seam below. Freaking sportos.

20 points for spray painting directly on the rock without using a template or making tape to keep paint off the rock.

100 points for using carbon bolts with stainless hanger, this is classic setup for galvanic corrosion, if you don't believe me go climb at the stone wall sometime.
