the latest Watts book has this at 5.10c
the crux isn't harder than that, but it involves a little more commitment than just climbing straight between the bolts.

One of the bolts (the left one) at the anchors was loose when I climbed this on 4/18/2015. And I don't mean that the hanger could spin - the bolt moved when I pushed on it. Be careful!

Danger! When I climbed this on 5/24/15, BOTH anchor bolts wiggled in the rock!! Fortunately, there are three new-looking bolts on the very top of the rock - top out to find them. It would be nice if someone would install some quick links on the top as the new bolts aren't ideal for rapping from on their own. The walkoff is also simple.

Danger Gone! The failing anchor has been replaced.
