On the 5.7+ side of things, particularly because the harder slab moves are well above the bolts, and there is a bit of slightly crumbly rock. Not as well protected at the cruxes as most other Bunny Slopes routes - not that any are tightly protected (particularly by modern sport climbing standards...but 4 bolts in 160 feet shouldn't give anyone any trouble figuring that out!).
