It's been a while since I've done this route, but my recollection is that the run out, while spicy, is on easier climbing. The crux is lower down and well protected.

The runout on this climb is dumb and contrived. It's basically a sport climb, except someone forgot to place the last two bolts. IMO, it doesn't make sense to have bolts 10 ft apart on 5.7 terrain and then bolts 25 ft apart on 5.8 terrain.

You could have the same number of bolts, just spaced more logically, and this route would not be runout at all.
