It's a jug-fest to the roof, but be careful as it's fairly sandy and the 1st bolt is high. But if you are on this route, I can't see how that part would be a problem, it's 5.9 at best. The roof itself is very fun to pull, but the difficulties will only begin in earnest on the headwall.
The grading seemed a bit off to me: I can see how it's a 11c going straight up hugging the bolts. Although the crux is short, it's definitely as hard as Staying Power or Thunder, if not harder. But judging from the obnoxious amount of chalk, almost everyone seems to bail to the right. That way it's 11-, or if you go far enough, maybe even easier.
