Jumped on this route for a warm up after only glancing at the first half (5.8?). The last half is a completely different style of climbing (slab, 5.10). The crux is between the last bolt and the chains. I'm 5'7" and couldn't reach the mostly horizontal rail with a good hold right before the chains. I have no problem climbing at this grade, it was just too reachy for me.

Did this as well for a "warm-up." I would call the top 5.10 and height dependent. It's not too bad when you figure out the sequence that works for you.

Definitely found the route reachy and tricky at the slab finish, my taller friends did it with ease though. Had to dyno to the finishing jug, took a fall before sticking it. Good clean fall line though, fun route.
