I bolted this in early September. If you stay right on the climb and use the wall behind you it goes easy at 5-8. If you stay left, it's more 5-10 ish, but it's slightly run out unless you are 5-11. I am 5-10 and have no problem clipping. If you are a 5-8 or even 5-10 lead climber stay right until you get to know the moves. I've done this many times on gear, before bolting it. If you are a 5-12 climber it's no issue however it's not an easy trad lead if you are a 5-10 climber, so be careful, the climb changes and gets very thin and placements are critical on the second stretch after the left block. If you place gear on the pitch after the the 2nd bolt, double up on that left thin crack and you will be fine. It's definitely placing gear before you make the crux move to the next ledge.
