Again, having climbed at Vantage (Frenchmen's Coulee) and similar PNW rock I can assure you it's not that big a deal, nor do I suspect Frog Buttress is any more problematic than Indian Creek. I've also trad climbed on the limestone at Krabi/Railay and didn't find it warranted more than a bit more care than an Eldo or PNW basalt.

Double up at groundfall placements, do as everyone is sugggesting and look for surface irregularities and constrictions, if any placement is suspect then double it up as well.
