Fun climb, but an extra bolt is needed between the first and second. My mate took a ground fall clipping the second bolt, because a hand hold broke on him.

Given the laced-up nature of the rest of the climb (3 bolts within a metre of each other above the second), there is no reason for the run-out between the first and second.

If I owned a drill and had the know-how (and the first ascentionist's permission), I'd do it myself.

OK, I'll pass your comment on to Steve Carr, who bolted it but gifted it to me. /Rick

Serious. I'll deal to that issue next time I'm out there.
