A little confused. Hopped on a route this weekend on a tower between Wind Wall and New Wave Wall (which would be Indigo Tower, right?) which followed the arete facing the Wind Wall. Sounds a lot like this route, but I'm about 99.99% sure that there were only 3 bolts to chains even though the description says 6. Are we missing something?

Also pretty sure that we were on this route. 3 bolts/chains. SQL 3 calls it 5.10-. It did seem harder than the nearby 5.9s.
