What makes you think that anything in that photo is manufactured? Everything looks natural to me just based on what I can see in the photo.

They felt like the manufactured holds at the quarry, really well placed, not much sign of this type of rock feature on any of the other rocks. Even coming out from the cave to the right there are pockets that traverse the lip of the roof, too perfect without any random pockets through out the boulder.

Just my guess.

Not sure as I'm not there, but they certainly look natural in the photo. If you haven't noticed, the manufactured holds at the quarry are all filled with glue to smooth them out. It's quite hard to manufacture a smooth hold without using that technique, so check it out and see if they are filled with glue or not. If you're not sure what I mean head back to the quarry and take a closer look at the manufactured holds.
