Bolt broken on Golden Valley Route #152 “Real Legend”

The top bolt before the anchor has broken on the classic Golden Valley Route #152 “Real Legend” . Allegedly the bolt broke under a fairly low load -when the climber was asking for a “take”

Bolted in 2003, this route is currently considered unsafe to climb.
