Awesome pics of an awesome looking route - hope it gets opened soon!

One quick comment - it looks like there has been some rebolting done on the route but the old bolts have not been removed. In the 3rd picture there are 3 bolts visible very close together with only 1 clipped. I think it detracts from a route when this situation occurs (climb in Thailand and you'll know what I mean). Assuming this is the case here, I say remove the old bolts and cover the holes with a bit of putty - nobody will know they were ever there.

Glad you like the pics :)

Yes, there has been a bit of re-bolting going on... reasons for this would be:
- The route was bolted way back and some of the bolts probably didn't look to good!?
- Due to the difficulty of the route, bolts were moved into better positions for clipping (its not possible to run it out as there is the big ramp not far below)

The last pic you can see the top bolt (of the three) directly below a grip.

I'm sure a clean up will happen.
