There has been a bit of a flap over changes to Intensive Care recently:

I got a chance to check it out yesterday, and if I didn't know any better, I'd say the bolts make sense, and are of high quality. It is difficult to determine which bolts are new as the route has two types of bolts. There are a handful of 1/2" rawls and all the rest are 3/8" stainless studs with fixe hangers. The ones in question are most likely from the 3/8" batch.
This is th 4th bolt on the first pitch. It is clipped while standing on the last chicken head about 10 feet below the ledge with the anchor. If this is new, it definitely changes the nature of the pitch. You are run out at this point with one more section of grainy slab-fu before groping the ledge while looking at a 40 footer.
Looking back down at the top of the first pitch.
This shot is looking down at the 5 bolts on the second pitch. From the topo in the Ruckman guide, I would guess that the 4th bolt is the new one. At that point, the crux is over and the climbing is relatively easy up to the fifth. This would be the biggest run on the route without the 4th bolt.
Maybe this will jog some memories. It is still a spicy route, and the work was well done. Is the guide book correct? Could the re-bolter not help diddling with it? I know that the first ascentionists were not contacted.
