Photos never lie. I admit it, I am an off-route bolt clipper.

Thanks t-bone. That seems like logical and good advice. White lightning was actually one of the next ones was looking at leading, Crack slabbeth with the 10b variation as well.

A Grim Reaper and additional info question

I have come to pick the mind of the slab friendly folks here. Are there any 1/4" bolts left on Grim Reaper, or any of the other .10/low 11 'slab'/ face routes on the apron? (ie white lightning, one scoop.., anxiety state). I am not too shy about the runouts, I just would like a bit more info before ...
