Marc put some work into it with the idea of bouldering it, but the landing is pretty bad. The FA was also another top rope FA, I suppose it could be headpointed, but bouldering it may be just as safe. Or, like the Rattlesnake at snake den, could be bolted, and then RI would have not one but TWO super classic two bolt wonders...d

Id suggest rope. Landing is extremely sketchy, especially attempting the moves of Halloween. Plenty of cracks up top to set nuts or cams for anchors. Awesome Climb!

I was looking at this today and it could maybe be done with 2 bolts, but to be done right it probably needs 3 if not a fourth and it would be very hard to bolt it so you could clip, but the rope wouldn't get in the way when your feet swing. If you have gone that far, then it should probably have an anchor. In the end I wasn't too psyched for the idea. It is a cool problem, but should probably stay as a TR test piece. Bring all your slings and crap and make a day of it, lol. Either that or somebody could practice their feather and wedge technique on the blocks below and haul the remains out of there then bring in a high jumping pad.
