I wondered what this route was when I did it (only have the Rositer guide) and after i did it, I penciled in: Unknown, 5.9+, That was my honest best guess.
I'm not trying to be inflamitory, but I honestly believe this route was no harder than 5.10a. I can't say it is any harder than Cosmosis (9+), let alone Gates Of Eden (10a). It is nowhere near as hard as Left Wing (10c).
I was up there and did it in the drizzle. Even a pal who hadn't climbed for a year (an has never made an 11 in his life) was able to do the moves.
We saw the extra bolt-hole too. I bet it was not placed/removed because it wouldn't keep you off of the ankle-raking boulder behind the route anyway.

|I too thought this route was easier than 5.11. I think it is a little harder than 10a but not much. You make a difficult move, and then it is over.|
