I climbed this route about a month ago, and the bolt at the end of the left crack, as the route line shows in the picture, looked newer than the other two in the route. I thought that it was a newer variation. There is a bolt in the middle of the slab (about 15-20 scary feet up) that made me think the climb was intended to go straight up originally. This way felt a little stronger than 9, maybe 10a, and definitely PG, but way fun.
