The Ruckman describes this route as having a hard clip. I couldn't help but notice the second bolt (crux clip) has been moved almost a foot lower then its original placement, possibly making the clip harder or easier depending on your height.

I don't know about the second bolt being moved, but regardless, in my opinion, it is still difficult to clip. Don't blow it. Considering the area, this isn't 11d. Certainly harder below the shelf, then anything on Reaching For Razors, but after that is probably 5.9(?) climbing. Fun, short, sequential route...
