Crazy how many people are on that!
So it looks like the top quickdraw in the picture has twisted the biner so that when it is loaded or grabbed from below, it could unclip the bolt. Not a huge issue when following, but could be bad when leading.

@Micah Agreed that the draw is wanky. I actually fixed it after I took the photo. Usually don't have that problem with these draws, but with the bolt being horizontal and just over the lip, and the rope running through at a weird angle, it got flipped around.

Stephanie Balbin on the bolt ladder. This photo also shows why it is important to get an early start.
