Bouldery is right. Sorta reachy first clip leads to slappy moves under and over the roof. Try not to move right when passing the roof or you will be on the neighboring route. Once you get the second bolt clipped, positive thin holds lead to the anchors. I'd go 2 1/2 stars since it is better the surrounding 2 star routes.
