I'd peg the opening moves to the first clip to be a height-dependent 11c/d. A stick-clip would've felt real nice.
The crux felt hard for the grade, definitely old school 11d. Felt like 12a to me, but I'm pretty soft ;) There's some really cool Houdini beta at the crux.
You could TR off the first anchor, but a better ledge awaits you 50 ft higher if you're continuing up Astro Monkey. Its 5.8ish to the next belay, and some sketch rock, so you may want a .5 or .75 piece, and you should probably bring a piece to back up the belay. There is one good bolt, but the other two are questionable: https://www.mountainproject.com/photo/111123032
