The only part of the route I thought had danger to it was the beginning until a meter or two up at the horizontal, which does not immediately accept gear, nor is it a great hold. The climbing and gear remain insecure until one is established in stems with hands at the horizontal and you can work in an Alien or large Ballnut. After that, no problem for risks....
As well, I climbed the route to the left and as said by Jason, avoided alost all of the bad rock mentioned by Ivan and Jason as such. Perhaps this avoidance is also why I did not give the route a bomb rating- the rock was good in my experience.
