Werner says he didn't do the FA. The bolts had been replaced by the time I started on SAR in 1999. Soooo, guess they may even be over 13 years old.

(its me Pat Warren, Greg! Hope you are doing good.)

I think this was replaced pre-ASCA, but it might well have been done by Tuolumne SAR folks or others with ASCA gear and I never heard about it. Regardless, the bolts are good!

One nearby route note is that when I replaced Head Rush (5.10a just right of right water crack), I found two broken off bolts and replaced those, so with some editions of guidebooks it's listed as a 3-bolt R/X, but it's actually a 5-bolt R.

Bolts looked close to brand new as of 2011, solid. A fall would be clean, but potentially long.

Classic Tuolumne. suck it up, don't get sewing machine leg and go for it.
Any beta on bolt replacements? Super Chris mentions it in the first post but the ASCA site doesn't list it.

What kind of lunatic climbs this in work boots?!?

(The crazy part was that we did this next to two guys with a combined age of 147 years who were cruising up Left Water Course.)

*What is "Route Beta"?
It's climber slang for information or tips on a route as in, "what's the beta on that route?" As a service to fellow climbers we ask SuperTopo guidebook users to post tips and updates to this website if they have relevant information to share after a climb.
