Ok, I am sure this climb is super cool, but I look at this photo and can't help but think that it is over bolted. I mean four bolts in one photo! This looks crazy.

JJNS? JohnnyJustNaySayer,
How about you climb the route, skip some clips as you wish, and then tell us it's overbolted.

until then,

Funny comment considering the original fuss around Vaso was that the crux was so runout that certain people wanted slings at the bolts to grab.

Definitely skip the bolts if there are too many. There is a nice ledge right below those bolts waiting to greet you.

As Adam says, that ledge will wake you right up if you skip those clips. This is a perfect sport route, perfectly protected - it gets sportier as you climb higher. The wall is very steep, too, so this photo foreshortens the true length between even those lower bolts.

Ok, there is a ledge beneath this section of the climb. Makes sense. thanks guys. I apologize for dropping the "O" word.
