This is a ridiculously sandbagged rating that is potentially dangerous. Expectation of a 5.1 is every move is obvious. First 20 feet (the dihedral portion) includes laybacks or a chickenwing jams. Not something I would throw a newb on.

Was going to use this to teach people how to place gear but all I used was one #4 cam and then solo-ed to the top. Maybe you could put one tricam at the ledge low. Last 15ft might be 5.1 but will run you out, ~25ft-30ft unprotected.
