I believe you guys are mistaken about the climb just right of the slabs direct route. I think this route is called something like Stop if You Dare (5.8r). It has two bolts one low, and one about 60 ft higher. South Butt of Wankers Wall is to the right of this, it starts a few ft left of the of Ninth Wave, has a single bolt, and and ends at the same belay as the Ninth Wave.

I think frik is correct.I followed this pitch once and I thought there were 3 bolts although I was not leading
and it was about 5 or more years ago.
Good friction pitch pitch if you're up to it.

Hey John,
just read in Webster's 95 ed.
Mike Hartrich soloed the fa in 74' and never named the route.
Stop if You Dare was written up  and named in the IME new route book in 92' by a later ascent party who
also did the route without bolts.
Anyone know when they went in?
Maybe the 3rd fa? ;)
