Pumpy at the grade. The hands look fine, but once you've been on them for a while they get pumpy, especially if you are in a bouldering mindset.
Feet are key for this traverse, as they are polished and sparse in places. Use the good hands to traverse left or right and top out if you desire.
In my opinion, traversing right to left then following the arete to topout up by Satan On A Halfshell (V10) is the most classic of the variations on this line.
The right beta will make this climb seem V2, without that beta this climb might seem more like V3+
