be solid at the grade on this one- there's ankle breaking potential if blow the 3rd clip, which is very tenuous.

John is spot on with his comment about the 3rd clip. Hard to get a clipping stance with small sloping edges for hands and feet. You absolutely cannot blow this clip so be careful. I clipped the bolt and grabbed the draw with no regret. This route could of been bolted better but also isn't really worthwhile anyway.
