There's potential ledge fall above the third bolt. I thought the crux was getting a stance after the jug. Fun section of steeper climbing.

Bottom of the climb is not terribly interesting but it gets exciting higher up! I've seen the crux pulled several different ways all of them are great! But you should be weary of an ankle tweaking fall higher up.
