Having done the third pitch many times(bolted line that requires a short right traverse to get to),i would rate it a good 5.9.
We will have to wait to see the equipper/opener's rating.

Goes up to a #4 bd.. especially in the crux. Made the mistake of racking up to 3 and whipping on a #2 placed at the entrance to the crux in the second pitch simply because the crack is wider then #3.....

May want to change your description....

Second pitch feels like a solid 5.9
