|I only climbed the first pitch and was just barely able to stretch a 60m rope to the ground. Another group went up the second pitch ahead of us and said it was phenomenal.|

|I'm not sure why this would get an R rating, nothing too scary here.|

I don't understand why this is rated as 4 stars in the Alan Watts guide. The rock quality on the second pitch is terrible and the movement is less than intuitive. Pebbles are everywhere and many sections have rock that you can just flake off the wall with minimal force. Both belays are hanging belays.
The R rating is due to the clipping position on bolt #2 on the second pitch, in which a fall would make you deck on the large ledge to the right of the belay anchors. This section just got slightly more difficult this weekend when the only jug broke off (hand for first clip, foot for second).
I'd do the first pitch again, but if I wanted to top out Red Wall I'd do Orgasmagoria, which is a far superior multi.
