I would not call this route PG13. Not the best rock but great moves and exposure. Pumpy!

I would be careful on some of the holds yet there are plenty of solid ones that as long as you consciously pick your holds, no choss should break off. If you do the extension though, the anchors have plenty of choss by your feet.

There are fun moves on this route but the amount of loose rock and rope drag really takes away from it. Would not recommend this one.
