The crux is very height dependent. I'm 5'8" with a positive ape index and the off-balance reach felt like a 5.10 move to me. For someone shorter it would be even harder.

There was only two bolts on this route, they were where they needed to be. It was a tad runout to start on easy moves, there is a flake you can plug some gear in but I wouldn't trust a fall on it, bolted at the crux which felt much harder than a 5.9, another bolt and then runout to the top. Easy construction of anchors with mid-sized gear under a boulder at the top.
