We did add a bolt.   When did FA I used a cam then slung the juniper then stepped onto the face and up to two bolts on face.  I also used a cam in horizontal down low -  just after 1st bolt, but that doesn't do a ton for you...

The juniper was looking pretty old, and we figured we didn't want to abuse the thing, so we added a bolt (tan) lower on the face after placing a cam and stepping up into the crack....

Joe Perez told me that he tried it the other day. he felt that the crux moves were quite a bit harder for "short people". he's a strong climber too...

I would agree with Joe Al. The feet are thin and you need them to get the holds in the corner...somewhat height dependent..but then again...Lynn Hill is 4' nothing...  ;)
