Cool route name!

might i suggest a slight improvement: Shiny shiny, shiny bolts of goodness.
[or 'stainless']

They have done well to last as we put that route up about 10 years ago and it's wet wet wet in there. There is a 5 pitch route on the LHS of the face too (the original route there). Some pitches were bolted on lead.
