 I want to make sure I am correct. In the guide book for Potrero Chico you have the number of bolts listed. Is this the bolt number per pitch or bolt number per route. For instance, Time Wave Zero a 20+ pitch route is listed as having 12 bolts. So do I interpret this as meaning that the most heavily bolted pitch of the 20+ will require 12 quickdraws?

Thanks for the help,

You are indeed correct...
On most of the longer routes there you'll usually link pitches to speed things up... so if thats the plan take somewhere near twice as many as listed.
