I am not sure this is really the right route for Chickies Direct. Maybe the Direct Finish version. Anyhow, there were obviously once three bolts at about pitch 2 or 3 (depending how you climb it). The ones on either side have been chopped but one giant rubber coated one has been left in the middle.

Anyone know the story behind this? Did someone mess up the other two when placing a rap anchor and just leave the one? Or did someone chop the other two at some point? It's a great spot to belay, but the gear is a little thin and one old bolt (big or not) does not inspire confidence.
