Think the 5.0 ratings are sandbaggery. 5.6 more reasonable esp given the lead pucker factor for mortals. First good pro is 20 feet up. Crack CAN be protected lower down but only if one slides out of position to the bottom of the trough to place large pro in the crack. Secure body positioning as confirmed by others but not an ideal first lead by any means. Still fun tho. rap off two bots at top or walk off to the right.
