Why the R rating?

Jay,
I threw the R in for high-ball or potentially dangerous problems, that's all. Just to give people an idea of what the problems are like. Rib has a lot of talus and rocky landings.

So the Boulder Bash was amazing! Travis Melin Flashed The Raptor, making it look like V3. Kelsen and Seth also made great repeats of the line.
