|On the third bolt, the hanger is super loose.|

This route shares an anchor with the route next to it, Bond In Blood (5.8). This route seems like it would be beneficial and practical to add another bolt above the last one and adding an anchor at the top of the cliff. It is steep enough up there that no rope drag would be added, and that would make leading perhaps a bit more straightforward.
Moreover, the rappel rings at the anchor are very worn and look like many people have been top roping directly through the rings. I would keep an eye on them, but they're fine for now. For future climbers: please respect that someone has taken their time and effort to install these rappel rings for your use and safety. Please supplement the anchor with your own gear if you want to top rope this route.
