Dave Scott replaced a couple of bolts on this route yesterday - the 3rd and either the first or second (I forgot already because it was in the past).

The potential for a groundfall is real. My belayer might have had too much slack out but I blew the anchors and my foot barely scrapped the ground - pants check.

If your belayer has too much slack out, theres always potential for groundfall. Besides, if you fall off the clipping jugs, the penalty should be groundfall.

Maybe a 2 star route. The 5 star route starts after the anchors. Wouldn't be worth it except for that...
