|some looseness on the lower part, especially the buckled pillar inside the slot at the bottom, but the climbing is surprisingly good and moderate.|

Today, I did the 5.9 variation of Burger King that is described in Stewart Green's "Rock Climbing Arizona", copyright 1999. on pg. 348, he says, "This route ascends a blocky buttress behind some oak trees. Face climb up the outside of the buttress to its top. Continue up easier rock behind to the rim."
The drawing on page 349 portrays a line exactly like the bottom of "Swedish Britfast Crack" at 5.10 PG13. I would have to agree with that rating, for the arete section. Stewart says, "not climbed enough". Hmm, that's interesting, because Paul Davidson says on MP (re "Swedish Britfast", "I doubt this has had very many ascents so it would be a good one for a repeat write up." Well, it was a stimulating onsight for little old me--especially the gear placements. Fun!
