The second pitch of either the slot or zig zag. Climb through a couple bolts (2) to the roof, clip before pulling the roof and climb to the anchors past one bolt on some awesome chicken heads.


second pitch of the slot or zigzag.


4 bolts, rap anchor. Easy climbing between the runouts.

Skinny Boyton was on the FA. Not really sure if this gets an R rating.

Perhaps you're right about the R, wouldn't want some gym rat to wreck themselves climbing on real rock though, 4 bolts for a 90 foot pitch seems 'R' to me, even on 5.2.

If the runouts were closer to grade, maybe an "R", but even so they are only 10'-15' at most, with some gear opportunities between bolts. Well protected for the one-move-wonder crux. Be sure to let out a blood-curdling, Braveheart style "freeeeedom!" at the roof for full value.
