|How hard is the R-section, and are the bolts any good?|

The climbing on the face is AMAZING. This is a long forgotten gem. I only gave it two stars because of how indirect the climbing is. There is no gear after the bolt on the face, so if someone is going to follow it, they are not allowed to fall.
I traversed over to the Spur of the Moment anchor. The only gear I placed after the bolt was on the arete, so after I clipped the anchor, I traversed back over to the arete, cleaned the gear, climbed back to the anchor, pulled the rope, and rapped. I then climbed up Darkness Till Dawn and traversed over to the first bolt on the Twist and Crawl Project. It's directly above the face climbing on The Color of Pomegranates. The first bolt on the Twist and Crawl Project is a fat glue in with a ring. I then used that anchor to clean my gear.
It's harder than Book of Numbers, Je T'Aime, Madame Guillotine, and Hairstyles and Attitudes. The bolt has been replaced with a glue-in. Expect run out 5.12 climbing above the bolt. The climbing is easy when you traverse off the face towards the arete.
