We didn't lead this, so we can't say for sure, but the clips didn't seem any more "tenuous" (D'Antonio) than the other routes in the area. Interesting and fairly sustained climbing. If you go directly up the arete high on the pitch, you can avoid a loose block out left and bump the grade up to solid 5.11, with great pro. Definitely recommended this way.

The clips are not "tenuous" on this. The holds are small and not obvious at times, but if you find them all, the climb is very doable. It felt about 11a to me.
