4 out of 5 stars not very cushiony

Pretty fun climb with some good moves, I'd give the safety rating a pg-13 because falling before clipping the last bolt lands you on a big ledge (not very cushiony). I unwisely let my buddy try to lead this (his first day leading) and he couldn't finish it and left it up to me (i was tired from climbing all day and too pumped to pull the last move) long story short i kept falling and hitting the ledge, finally gave up with a badly twisted ankle and some torn pants. came back today and blasted up it, not too bad when you're not tired.

3 out of 5 stars Cushions

This is an ok climb. Someone stole the first bolts hanger that the belay usually clips in to, so now you need to hook in to the top of tennis ball for a safe belay.
