What's with the runout at the top? It looks like falling while clipping the anchor could result in a groundfall. Even if it was '5.easy', it's possible to slip on that slick, Poudre granite if you are really pumped. Not sure if Dan skips a bolt in his video, but I see a few potentially protectable cracks. Anyone know if you can get a cam placement before the anchor? The route looks Amazing!

I don't think you would deck if something happened at the top, but the runout is a little unnecessary and potentially dangerous. There are several good cam placements through the runout section, but I would be more concerned about the rock quality in that section. One more bolt would make the route much safer, and I am a little confused why they did not place one more bolt.

Bwahahaha!
Not the only route from Mr. Kaufman with some spice to the anchor!
Haven't climbed on this yet so I can't judge...but I bet a bolt is needed.
