Description 

Slabs on the South side of Cap Rock, behind the second picnic table. The thin face between two cracks (Visual Nightmare and Slim Pickings).

Thin edging leads to the first bolt and relief. More edging to the next bolt proves to be the crux. Traverse right (cam on extended sling) along the horizontal crack. The face above has sightly better holds than below, although interest is maintained to the anchor.

Rappel off the anchor.

Protection 

5 bolts, 1 medium cam, long slings, 2 bolt anchor.

Don't think it warrants an R rating. Maybe PG13 at the most.
