Any more info on that bolted route? FA? Meant to be TR? Came across it today and it looked interesting... 2 bolts reasonably placed up to a ledge (about mid point at about 15 ft), then nothing until the anchor. If you fell from just below the anchor, you would either A: deck on the midpoint ledge, or B: potentially hit the ground.
Be careful on lead

This was one of 3/4 short boulder routes that had bolts & fixed gear done in the early 90s . I think this one which, was called (lips like sugar) is the only one with blots left @the top. It had two on the lower steep face & then yes a ledge that you could place a small piece, but you wouldn't want to fall from here.
Rated 11A/B .
Done when this mixed style was common in BCC.
Also of note: these routes where chopped by a grumpy old man Who didn't like how popular this spot was getting !
Commonly top roped or soloed head point style.
Many of the most obvious boulder problems had been done by our mentors & a Few where added Vo to v6 .So not that many "new fa's in this zone
Hope this sheds some historical light.
PS Drilling in this rock back then was Brutal.
