I asked.....  :-\

The firstmaybe, 10 times I did Reverse, there were 4 bolts, you didn;t go into the dike on the left, you went right and then up to just before the lip (there is also a 11B finish).

I don't know who in fact did this, by I suspect a "local" whom all would know

Only read this if you aren't attempting to troll:
I don't believe this would be the case in the east. Before the era of tri-cams, small angles would sometimes be used in natural pockets. Drilling a hole in granite, for even the smallest angle would have been quite a feat. However, out in the desert a lot of rap anchors off towers were drilled holes, with old soft steel angles pounded into them (we're talking sandstone)...

Are the pins on Reverse Camber straight up from the hanging belay in natural holes??? I thought they were drilled. Strandman??? Been 20+ years since I have done it.

R camber was bolts, then redone with pins...foolish is a kind word. Drilled pins in granite is fucking stupid.

I knew those holes were to perfect to be natural. Why were the bolts removed John and replaced with pins in holes. That is dumb!

Drilled pins started in Co, garden of the gods, when army ring angles were common (you don't wanna know)..They conformed to the hole a bit 'cause they  were a bit "soft"  I have done this and it sucks.
Most bolts at the time were split shaft compression, OK  for granite but really bad in soft rock.

Now  doubleexpansion bolts are the way to go in shitty rock  and of course angles are $$$$

Or you could drill a piton.
This is pretty funny.  Almost as "good" as an angle from a bed frame.
