Another old test-piece showing its age. The lower section with the good climbing is still in good nick. Boulder out to the big hole (V4 - harder than it looks). Sort out gear in the break (peg) and stretch or jump to good holds above. The rest is easy, though dirty and the pegs are old. There is a new lower-off.

Noticed a few new chalkmarks on the route this in my opinion is unusual as most of the gear is a little dodgy especially the old rusty pegs, There has also been a new bolt b-lay put at the top of the climb which makes me think someone is planning on bolting the climb which would mean it was climbed a little more often, im am not for or against bolting the climb but i would like other peoples opinions on this matter.

not sure about bolting it. Depends on consensus. probably need to hear from people who have actually done it.

Is it worth bolting if all the good climbing is on the V4 boulder prob to the hole? Won't that encourage more traffic and just make the good boulder problem even more polished than it already is?

Bolt it! Isn't it time we sorted out W-c-J so that it is a decent place to go climbing?
