is the bolt that popped out the one that you would clip as you pull the roof?

Is there still a bolt missing from this route? I want to make sure the description is up-to-date.

The fifth bolt is still missing, but the fall going over the lip is safe. All the pockets are clean and the route is a lot of fun. More people should get on this!

This now concludes my week of choss. Sand, Pile Driver, and Crumblies. Wow what fun.

Needs a full rebolt, the 1st bolt is an old stud that has pulled out from the rock a half inch, the rest of the bolts are rusty studs and the 5th bolt is still missing. A fall after the lip would put you in a tree. The anchor setup is a hanger with a single quicklink and a closed shut with no ql's.
