It's only 5.11 if you crank the direct start. It is much easier traversing in from the side.

I'm guessing a hold broke for the direct start...traversing in felt 11a for St. George, if only for the crimp crux at the anchors.

Crimpy direct start. The start moves may qualify as 5.11 if encountered higher up on a long route. Pulling the crimps right off the ground with fresh arms make it feel more like 5.10+. The rest of the climb is a formality.
