Don't let the R-rating scare you off. I protected this route adequately using a #4 Camalot at the top of the crack on the right and then with a couple of medium TCUs in the crack on the left.

A fun climb which though slightly runout is not too bad. I'd agree with a PG rather than R rating. I didn't use any gear but tied off three horns with slings for pro.

Fun climb, if short. R rating is reasonable for a 5.4 leader - casual for those leading 5.7 or harder.
