Why is this bolted?

Good question. Done without bolts in August, 1992 with Rich Romano.

I can't speak for the people who placed the bolts, (I assume Brooke, but am not really sure...) but I was psyched to clip them. They're right when you're most pumped and, while there are definitely good gear placements there, they're small, specific, and difficult to see and/or place from the lie-back that you end up in. This would be a proud on-sight skipping the bolts.
