For what its worth, we used to lead here all the time, and the gear always held. May 2, 2010

For those considering taking up the sharp end at Great Falls:

"The rock is partially-metamorphosed schist composed of granite and quartz crystals. While the rock is stable, it is not recomended for trad climbing as protection will slip or break out."
