Ok climb, rating seems right. No bolts between the second bolt and the run-out anchors which is odd. It's easy climbing but a slip on the top out would not only result in a 30ft ground fall but could dislodge a few small boulders sitting on the ledge and could severely injure your belayer. Extend your anchors here if you're top roping to avoid a lot of rope drag.
