The first 40 ft. of this route makes for a nice 5.9- rainy day route. There are slings to lower from. The upper portion of the climb is well worth doing though.

It's 5.8+ to the first set of shuts -- to do the route at its original 5.10 rating, traverse right under the roof until reaching the bolt anchor for it's neighboring sport climb.

Fun lead to the anchors. Agreed this is 5.8+ with a variety of smearing, stemming and jamming. There is a irrevocable flexcam at the top of the double crack that can be clipped, saving you some time moving to the ledge.
