I'm assuming you don't mean the new bolt stations installed for our convenience. Protection bolts are:Nazgul, Fat City

Twilight Zone had an A4 rating in the Gran guide. More recently, The Best Things In Life Aren't Free, to the right of the Twilight Zone aid crack.

Fat City? It has a notorious pin, but I don't think there's a bolt on it. OTOH, there is the bolt on Honky Tonk Woman.

Pretty embarassing when you fuck up your own trivia question. Anyway, the final route i know of to be rated A4 was New Frontier, 5.6 A4, freed of course, by John Stannard. When I did Fat City, there was a ridiculous rusted out 1/4 incher slightly right of the belay stance after the crux. Looks like the bolt on Phoebe.

No, those were 5.9 until the recent (last 10years) upgradings.
