Interesting moves. Tough top 15 feet of climbing!

In my opinion, this route is not PG13, it is a fully bolted sport route and totally G. If you feel the need to protect the moves from the ledge to the first bolt, the crack takes smallish cams (green alien/yellow MC range) the majority of the way.

I agree with Kevin, the last few feet of this route are blank and difficult.
