this shouldnt be bolted, absolutely no need, bomber pro almost as regular as the bolts by the look of it, and the style of climbing feels much more like a trad route than sport.

Originally VS 4C. In it's bolted state F5 would be more accurate. Good climb nonetheless, did a bit of gardening towards the top. Initially got on it to sort out where Genghis Khan was!

Good route, probably F5 and worth two stars bearing in mind the complete lack of other decent bolted routes at this grade in the area.
