Climbed this today.

First pitch is easy climbing with bolts nearby in case you don't like your placements. On the ledge above are a couple of glue-ins with plenty of space to setup your belay.

The second pitch definitely has a few sections where I felt sizable chunks of rock could come off under full body weight. You can see some of the fracturing and sections will certainly move under pressure. There was a small runout to my first good piece as I very gingerly moved past this sketchy rock. It was still easy climbing, just runout on questionable rock. Further up placements got better, as did the climbing. Two .5s were helpful, could have used 3 of them even. Near the top, it was pretty dirty so protected the bulge with a coupel fo nuts and a cam to get up to a small tree on a very dirty ledge, just before the top of the cliff. Rope drag was getting rough so I belayed my second up from there. No anchors/chains in sight. We rapped to the ground from that tree, a 60-meter was just enough. There could have been a walk off up and right (based on what we saw of the cliff form the ground) but we didn't go up to look.
