Nothing too tricky about the lower pro. as long as you trust an's the non-existent pro for the 20-25ft above the bolt that "makes it 'interesting'". We're not too sure of the ratings of this vs. it's left hand neighbor, but felt "End of World" was a full grade harder than "Finger Licken".

i recall getting another piece up higher above the bolt. it would be a bit spicey without it!

I believe that once you can get pro in above the bolt the serious climbing is over.
While TR-ing it today (8/18/15) I broke a knobby hold off while standing on it; the hold was about 8-10 ft above, and slightly left of, the bolt, I lowered down a bit and re-climbed the sequence, so I don't think it seriously affected the rating although now when you're in that position you're standing on a smear rather than a real 'hold'.

you can get good gear (nuts) out to the far left, not too far above the bolt. I didn't see much below the bolt, however! fun route, just keep a cool head!
