The LeMenestral brothers.

Who bolted it, and who retro bolted it? (with a consensus)

Nope.
He did bolt all of the variations.

The route was originally led ground up with 2 or 3 bolts on the bottom half and small gear for the section shown in the photo. Pretty proud, but it didn't get led much until the upper part was bolted.

Bingo!

Now, who was the retro-bolter?



More trivia,
Why were there anchors at the top? then no anchors, then anchors, then no anchors....
