good route with a bit of scary rock about half way up.

Definitely would give it a PG 13 rating. 15 ish foot runout after the 5th bolt I think. The climbing at that point is pretty easy, but still a little nerve wracking.

Led this today. This was my first climb since taking a good fall down in Eugene. Scared the crap out of me getting to the top of the 15 foot run-out then having to clip over the buldge. Super fun, but scary. Definitely PG-13. Some of the rock looks iffy- but everything I touched felt solid.

Runouts don't mean PG-13...

Good climb, and safe if you bring a 1" and 2" piece, otherwise... don't fall. The traverse sequence is cryptic and/or that "+" adds several letter grades... like so many other routes at Broughton. And this route is 65 feet long, not 45, in case anyone cares.
