Originally rated 5.3X in the first edition of Watts' book, the second edition now rates this at 5.5R. While not difficult, the lower moves are awkward enough that a rating above 5.3 seems warranted. Poorly protected for trad climbing, but a good beginner route once a TR is established. For the very small or very timid, one can "cheat" a bit by starting up and left of the crack, although this would likely downgrade the route back to the 5.3 range.
Furthest left route on the North (left) side of the block (left of "How Low Can You Go"). Start in the flaring crack and work your way up.
