Any Knowledge on Tannin Area Routes?

So I was up at the Red Wall today, climbed a thing or two whatever. I noticed that in the gully past Tannin and Wyrd - up a gross little scramble - there's a line of bolts. I've looked on The Crag, and checked Lou's guide, and there's nothing about it.

There's a Douglas Hockly & Ingvar Lidman route with bolts just left of Wyrd, I'm not talking about that. Further up past that stuff there's a chockstone (hey that's the site I'm on!), these bolts I saw are maybe (rough, rough estimate) three or four meters right of the chockstone, on the same wall as Tannin, at a guess 10-20 meters up from Wyrd.

Anyone have any knowledge of this route? Is it a project? Any information is appreciated, there will be no reward.

Old bolts or new? carrots, hangers or glue ins? Gal or stainless? these things can offer some suggestions to who might have done it.

They look newish. Not old, but not put in a week ago either. Expansions with hangers. Stainless by the looks of them. Muki doesn't know anything about them, so it wasn't him. I was thinking it might be Douglas.

don't think douglas has done anything other than the 24 there. and certainly not put them in the last 6 years. highly unlike n the 6 years befoe that as he wasn't climbing much in those years. not gordy either, he uses gal. how hard does it look?

By my unprofessional estimation it looks harder than anything else in the area. Hard to say without playing on it but it looks harder than 25 at least. I'm going off a weak memory here though.

Nope, not me. Probly Noddy.
