Bullshit. I have climbed IB before. I was 100 feet past my last bolt on the 5.easy sections in the middle. On the lower 5.8 and below pitches, 20-40' runouts are not that uncommon. It is not a sport route; fall in the wrong place and you're are going to get hurt. Basically anything 5.8 or harder will be reasonably protected, anything easier will be runout, anything really easy will be a free solo. Granted yes, the unprotected sections are easy but the rock is a little bit polished, a bit chossy, and it is slab. So you probably wont get pumped out and fall, but you could slip.

I have photos of the runout sections if anyone wants to see them.
