This is a pretty good trad route. Josie's original rating of 5.8 is way off though. Doing it in high humidity and no chalk yesterday it felt more like 5.10, so maybe 9+ ? Anyway, it's worth bringing a light rack along to do it. It has one somewhat run-out section. If that concerns you, a #5 Camelot would probably work in that stretch.

This is the quality way to reach the technical-means-only summit of the crag (by climbing past the anchor). Old school !
