The crux is getting over the intial bulge and the pump factor at the top. If you decline to take the hand jam rest in the middle you could probably make the climb 12.a.
One climb right of Under the Boardwalk.

Having been on this several times, including recently- this thing is at least .12a/b, probably .12b. I hear tale that if you are shorter, the bottom section is significantly easier (i believe this given how scrunched up i was)- but its a HARD route. Far harder than every other .12a i've done or gotten on in the park.
Also, bring a long stick clip (12') to stick clip the second bolt- clipping it mid-crux is very difficult.

I agree with Jon. No chance is this 5.11d. Felt like the hardest 5.12a I've been on (though my list is short). Definitely seems like it would be easier for a shorter person than me, but still worth trying if you're tall.
