3 out of 5 stars Where's the first bolt?

I was looking at this one in the guide book which said it had four bolts and the anchors, but could only find 3. Finally we just determined that the rock for the bottom bolt had fallen off the wall. So, I placed a piece of gear in a crack. I don't know if the piece missing made the route harder or not, but what was there seemed a little harder than a 5.6.

Good easy route. Likely 5.8ish, may be a bit tough for a 5.6 leader.
