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.
