Was there a pin at the crux once upon a time? Hard to protect the crux I found although I had good gear right underneath me. cool line!

Stout for the grade (like a lot of routes on the island). Not a sandbag, just not a giveaway at all. Crux is right where the initial corner/chimney ends at a bulge with razor-cut (and thin!) finger crack above. Might be easier if you're short, because the crux move requires a one-leg press with the left leg. This (and other nearby routes) are very Yosemite-ish in terms of rock quality and features. And don't worry about protecting the crux: you can absolutely sew this puppy up.
