This route is well protected. Hate to disagree with both of you.

Yes, excellently bolted. This route is a classic. The first time I ever got on it I melted off the anchors and, well, the phrase "come on down!" resonated with me...

I had no issues with the way the route is developed. The only possible bad (non-air) fall I saw was missing #3 and swinging back into the vertical section below #2. It would be possible to swing your legs back into the rock falling onto #3 or #4, but really only if the belayer is keeping the rope taught while you ascend past the protection causing a wrecking ball effect. Unlike most climbers when going through a crux after the last piece, ask the belayer to keep a small bit of slack out so that it softens the fall and directs it downward instead of on a pendulum with the last draw. BTW, the route has only 4 bolts and 2 open shuts for anchors, not 5-6 bolts as stated.

This route currently has 5 bolts I think. It felt very safe, actually the last bolt requires some care that you don't Z clip. The open shuts at the top are a little rusty but seem solid.
