Only "minimum protection because there were an extra 100 bolts on the head wall, when he made his previous redpoint attempt.

Personally, I find Kennedy and Kruk's ascent much more impressive. Pure alpine style ascent without the camera crew and associated friggers in the rigging. No huge sponsorship. They didn't use Maestri's bolt ladder and then were brave enough to make a huge ethical decision by chopping the bolts on the head wall and redeeming a beautiful mountain.
