One can either traverse the face, as Josh is doing here or undercling the crack below his feet. The decision to traverse was made after an attempt to go straight up. Adding a bolt about the shoulder level of the climber pictured, would create a new, possibly more direct P2. We did not bring a bolt kit and took the line of natural pro.

...and the "gear" seen in the photo was absolutely jingus.

The gear for this route is consistent with the grading of the route and the alpine setting. The hardest pitches to protect, if memory serves me well, are P1 and P2. On the Rainbow Highway variation I would include the crux pitch as challenging gear placements.
