I have not been involved in the rebolt, however I was climbing with Giles Bradbury on the weekend, who told me that he supported the retrobolt in question.
I understood that Giles had done the route, and also he apparently was at the crag on the first ascent.
Apparently the route was extensively toproped prior to redpointing. As well as this, poor wire placements were preplaced and "hammered into the placements" to make sure they would stay in!!
I understood when I spoke to the bolter that he had basically replaced the bolts that were there, and added two bolts where gear had been "hammered into the placements".
Seems like a reasonable retrobolt when you look at it that way.
