Someone's added another 4 bolts to this line (!) so it's now fully bolted. Probably only worth about 20 now. Not sure why it's been retro-ed as the gear in between the bolts was bomber and with castle rock gone we need all the trad climbing we can get...

Watch out for the BIG moving loose block halfway up, too many people around today to lever it off. Yeah grade about 20.

This was originally grade 22 so 21 seems a good compromise. I checked the moving block (it's huge) but didn't get it off.
