This route is pretty stout considering its meager 30' length. 2 or 3 pieces in the finger sizes is all you should need for the lead. 1-2.5" for the anchor, scramble down to climbers right.

5.10c in Randy's guide and 2/5 stars. Seems that it is 5.10+/11a (NOT .10b) based on my experience and comments under the misgraded Rain Dance page here. Worthwhile if you're already here for Perpetual Motion, but certainly not a destination climb.
