2 out of 5 stars Fun climb but rock sounded hollow in places.

Great climb, fun movement. Lead up between the 4th and 5th bolt, but the rock sounded hollow and I chickened out. Have lead much harder, but didn't trust the rock. My friend finished leading it, so then I toproped it. To be honest, great views, but because of the hollow sounding rock, I probably wouldn't climb it again.
