This is a full-on retro of the original route!

Indeed; No new climbing!

There are two lines of bolts between Citizen Dust and Bilboes. The left hand one appears to have a desperate start followed by easy climbing. The right hand one starts up a scoop and then goes straight up. The left hand line looks like the one in the guide but I couldn't touch the start so did the right hand one (6c ish?). There is another line of bolts left of Citizen Dust as well. Does anyone know what's going on here?

There are two bolt lines between Citizen Dust and Bilboes. The left looks to have a desperate start then easy climbing - this matches the line in the guide. THe right hand line starts up a scoop then goes straight up. I couldn't touch the start of the left hand line so did the right one - 6c? There is also another line of bolts between Citizen Dust and Borstal Breakout. Does anyone know what's going on here?
