As to the bolts, in trad climbing you seldom clip bolts. Removable protection like nuts and cams often goes in cracks, but also sometimes in other features like small pockets in the rock. If no such features are available, it gets more interesting: you may change itinerary, run it out, or drill a hole and put in a bolt. This explanation is way oversimplified, but I hope it gives you the general idea.
