I found clipping the second bolt to be very difficult to do without climbing way out to the left and then coming back, where you would be above the bolt and in danger of decking on the ledge before clipping.

Hmm...sorry about that. I didn't really notice it being hard to clip #2 and I ran a few laps on this Saturday and then did it again early Sunday morning. I clipped it at shoulder height off of a big left hand hold (crescent shaped jug). The body position for 1 & 2 is,indeed, left of the bolts, but not far left of them.
Thx for the feedback. I'll look at it again next time I'm out there. I'll reposition that bolt if it is indeed a problem.

11/7/12: After reclimbing this several times and watching 3 others do the same, the second bolt position is perfectly fine.
