This route is great, on excellent rock, with good gear. Very fun, you may want to run a few laps on it as as we can all agree it is just too short and leaves you wanting.
That said, for it to be .10a, you either must have hands the size of a female wood elf, or be a dude with massive sausage fingers as fat as Ball Park franks. It is dead vertical to bulging, and ring lock size for most people. I am not sure what I would rate it, but getting established and making the first few moves was damn tough and insecure.
If you are only planning on climbing this gear route, to save weight in your pack, bring (2) #0.5, (2) #0.75, (1-2) #1, and maybe a #2 (BD sizes). This is more than enough, but we won't all place in the same spot and it would give you options.
