When I looked down at the foot-long metal rod sticking up off the ledge to the left, I was very careful clipping the next bolt. Will and I were laughing and calling this route "Vlad the Impaler" after that section.

Don't let that stop you from climbing this though! The bolting is safe.

I enjoyed this one. Lots of moves of comparable difficulty but paced with a couple of nice rest spots, and a bit of variety.
