I don't know if it has been re-bolted but there are 2 bolts and the clips are not too strenuous. The second bolt is hidden in an alcove about 5 feet above the first. This extension is well worth doing as you get to top out on the apex of the wall and get some fantastic movements and exposure. 70m does reach the ground.
