This route is closer to 1,000 feet tall and is definately not R rated. It eats up pro. There is only a few sections that are slightly run out.

Only climbed the route once, back in the mid 80's, but, I seem to dimly recall that it wasn't that R rated for a climber used to harder run out routes, but, do recall run outs, and, do recall thinkin' a 5.6 leader might be pretty sketched on some of the route. For the 5.6 rating, I'd call it R or PG. For the 5.10 climber used to that type of climbing, perhaps not.
