Comments: I found it pretty easy to combine pitches #4 and #5 without any rope drag. The key was to skip the first bolt after the intermediate belay. The climbing is very easy, so I thought it felt safe. The downfall to this option was that there was extra rope out for the crux of pitch #5, and the fall looks like it could be a little rough.
