As of Dec. 2011... Maybe some holds have broken, or I had done to many climbs that day, but from the start to the 3rd bolt or so this seemed way harder then 5.6 and I think this would be a challenging lead for a beginner or 5.6 climber.

Climbs harder than 5.6 through the first two bolts.

I agree - the first couple of bolts are probably 5.7 to 5.8 terrain, the rest is cruiser fun.

Didn't seem that hard, but harder than the routes on either side of it. Maybe 5.6C

I agree with Matt that it is surprisingly hard for the first two bolts. It's pretty spacious on bolts for a beginner too. I think Panzarotti is the best of the 3 lower grade routes.
