Description 

Worth doing, despite the R rating. Typical Pinnacles potentially lethal runout on easy but friable rock to anchors. Three bolts and some medium cams lead up a face with small ledges. Finishes on The Verdict anchors.

Protection 

Given the ledges on the route the possibility for injury is a real possibility. However, the crux is well protected and the only place of concern is above the last bolt (after the crux) while placing some gear in a flake from good holds. Three bolts and a couple medium cams to mussy hook anchors.
