Agree with Craig, runout with groundfall potential. So why the PG-13 rating. A piece in the undercling would probably bust the flake holding a fall. Oct 7, 2012

You should definitely consider placing a small-to-medium piece at the undercling flake above he 2nd bolt. The runout to the 3rd bolt is gauranteed ground fall and somewhat spicey. May 24, 2010
