If you stay directly under the anchors, then it's probably a 10b. There is a 5.9 variation slightly to the left where you can ascend using small pockets (don't use the crack, which is part of the 5.7 Cragmont undercling route).

Seemed to me like the "pocket" variation between the crack and moss slab is more of a 5.8. Just my thought on the matter though..
