Best one on the wall. Scary is right that ledge/block looks like it could come out with some freeze thaw cycles and the right heavy climber pulling or standing on it... be careful.

I liked this one a lot, even with the dirty rest.

Fun climbing, but the pedestal feature above the lie-back section is very hollow sounding. Tread lightly.
