I liked this little route. It seemed that the hardest moves were the footwork to get on the wall at the first bolt. Also, one of the blocks you're likely to pull on to get up to the ledge, about 3/4 of the way up on the right, isn't solid and looks glued down with dirt.

Agree with LG that the moves below the first bolt are the most difficult. You can ensure that you get that first bolt clipped (I can do it being 5'9"), then work the bouldery start.

After that start, I had fun. Some of the holds are a little dirty.

Not bad, I agree the hardest part was at the first bolt. Some cool moves up higher.
