I assume you're referring to the 'retro' by establishing a new route around Stiletto? I haven't done either of these so can't comment.

I recall these being useful as the only nearby gear is large cams. I may have that wrong, it's been a while. Four though? I only remember two.

Can I clarify what this one is all about?
Are we talking about the traverse pitch (which, the way I recommend, is pitch 2) or have some bolts been installed recently somewhere else? Only did this route about a year ago.
