5.11b if you don't use the block behind you (like a sit-down start from the low undercling). Some think harder still.
If you start on the block it might be 11- though, or perhaps even less if you walk up it to start far to the left. Regardless, interesting opening moves lead to more mellow climbing once your feet are above the roof.
