Don't forget to traverse the Buttered Log. Watch out for cops.

A crash pad would be nice but is not necessary.

Same question for this one,

what exactly makes this a PG-13? The landing is flat and grass. Can't ask for a better landing.

John - It's PG-13 if you have never bouldered outside before ;)

The landing's a little hairy. It's gravel, a concrete border, and lighting built into the ground. The grass is a couple feet back from the landing point. You basically have to down-climb to one of the first two or three footholds before hopping off if you're without a crashpad.

EDIT (Aug 18th '12) : Just want to reiterate the "Watch out for cops" sentiment above. Four Milwaukee police cops on bikes rode past while my friend & I were climbing here and didn't seem the least bit bothered by our presence. The Sheriff's departent, on the other hand, drove one of their SUVs from Lincoln Memorial, up and over the curb, over the recreational path, and over the grass, just to meet us at the base of this problem and give us a good scolding. I explained we'd been there before, we weren't the first to climb these, and we wouldn't be the last. His response was in reference to the classic dilemma, "If someone jumps off a bridge..."
