Be aware that Rachel and Rebecca are very close to each other, and may even share a bolt right before the roof. They are very different routes though: in the start, and you pull through the roof in two different places. It is possible to slot a large (2 or 3) camalot under the roof if you want to augment the fixed gear.

Definitely agree, and recommend skipping the roof bolt and only using the cam placed in the horizontal at the roof, keeps rope in direct line of climb.

Weird bolting job. Ground fall potential at the moves leading up to the second bolt. Don't think the cam under the roof is necessary.

My current understanding is that the steel bolts and hangers on this route are a holdover from before this area was legally opened for climbing. They have not been approved (or disapproved) by the Torne Valley Climbers Coalition, and are not maintained by the TVCC or Harriman Park, so whether or how to use them or not is your own responsibility.
