It seems as if this pitch may not get repeated often, and as a result there is some lichen and some flexing features to be navigated. Be particularly wary of the thank-god jug about 20 ft off of the belay (the first big feature you get after a bunch of balancey, techy moves on small pro), which flexed a bunch when I grabbed it.
I don't think the pitch deserves an R or even a PG, but protecting the first half is more involved than your standard Yosemite crack climb.
