Yeah this climb is definitely an injury risk. I used to try it years ago and the crux seems to be getting past a tall hand jam. Getting the jam isn't a problem, but the next move is very hard and you fall in a way where your hand stays in the jam and you have to consciously pull it out while you fall. If you don't, possible broken wrist.
