Ok, I've got some 'splain to do.
The FA's are listed as Unkown. When we climbed the route we thought we were doing an FA. Part way up the first pitch we found a well placed(not stuck) cam with a locked, locking carabiner on it. This appeared to us to be a bail piece. We could not see this piece from below. When the leader got to the obvious belay, he did just that. With no anchors around he put in 2 good bolts and lowered off. Another climber then went up, and led the second pitch. At the top of that pitch an anchor was discovered. This anchor was, also, not visable from below. That anchor consisted of a poor drilled angle and a fixed (and bent really weird) #10 Hex. This anchor was partially removed(the hex and slings)and replaced by 2 good bolts and chains.
So! If anyone has info about this route, please let me know! I'd love to hear more about it and give credit where its due. Obviously the route name will be changed once we know what the FA's called it. The part of this route we climbed was outstanding, and I assume there is more to it....
