Chime! One thing to note about previous anchors at Point Perp is generally they are always positioned well back from the cliff edge - so only two bolts can work as belays for several routes, and the bolts can be somewhat hidden amoungst vegetation and more weathered rock. Bolts right on the edge of the cliff - especially rings or FHs, really stand out like dogs balls on the smooth tops of the cliff - and are a major trip hazard. The area around Liquid Insanity and Rex Hunts is already plagued with an assortment of new bolts placed in the last few years that were already 'controversial' as they are not needed. I think many were placed by Defence for absquealing.
