After climbing this formation a couple times via different lines, I think this is the 5.8 line most would consider the easiest way up Eyetooth.  After the first gulley pitch (dotted line - gulley not able to be seen from this angle) belay from the ledge, and go right up the large flake, making your way up and left via the flakes to the final bolted slab.

Nice picture of the line Chris. Are you aware of any reasonable line up the dihedrals visible in this shot direct to the first belay? Apr 10, 2018

Sean - I'm sure it could and/or has been done, but TBH I have not looked specifically at the line you mention when I've been up there. Could be wide and possibly loose/flaky. On our first outing to this formation we climbed up some cracks to the right of the usual gully start and that protected ok - but we chickened out of sumitting that day as darkness approached.

EDIT TO ADD: I think this photo describes what you are talking about: mountainproject.com/photo/1… Apr 10, 2018
Thanks Chris, that crack system to the right of the gully start looks like a cool option. Apr 10, 2018
