Those are all downsloping joints and riffles--can't for the life of me image what he is securing himself to. Unless of course this route is another one similar to the "Compressor Route" made famous on Cerro Torre. Remarkable 10/10

There are plenty of holds pointing up too. Not exactly like the Compressor Route on Cerro Torre, but yes, it's a bolted face. It's a sport route. If I remember it correctly, the bolts are every 10-12 feet apart. The first bolt is a bit high off the ground, you certainly don't want to fall before clipping it.

Ok, understand, thanks for the clarification. I used to do slow pitch sport climbs on the Dreaded Pillar route at Smith Rock in Oregon. Similar in some ways I suppose to yours, but the bolts had to be set/ removed each time per club rules. Made me dizzy and quite fatigued each time!
