Nick.....nice perspective from above the last bolt. I doubt you'd hit the ground, but you'd certainly look like you'd been dragged over some really bad road. While the ground fall potential maybe there, it apparently isn't that harrowing if you stopped to take a photo, before you reached the anchor.
Definitely wouldn't if you're going straight down the slab.. but off the right hand side it's only 30 or 35 feet to the ground (due to the hill that the slab is on). I guess it would depend on how much slack your belayer is giving you. I was just observing that even though it's easy climbing it can be very challenging to a new leader due to the long runouts.
I don't think another bolt in between would be amiss. What's the consensus on adding/replacing at this location? I'll probably be back in a few weeks and if no one objects I'll put one in there...
Don't add a bolt to that route. The first time I did it, it freaked me out and I didn't want to lead the second pitch, but now it's fun. I led the runout section with no hands a few months ago. There's several other routes there that are safer if you just want a mellow cruiser to the top.
Looking down the first pitch of Goldline. After the fifth bolt it's about 30ft to the belay anchor. It's technically easy (maybe 5.4) but the runout can be a little intimidating because a slip just before the anchor could put you on the ground if you go off the right side of the slab.
