Worth while route if you are at this wall. The book calls it 10b, more like 10a to me, tell me what you think.

the bouldery start was awkward and committing on lead, but the climbing eases after pulling over the bulge.

Start is probably 10b for smaller people, 10a for tall folks who can pull off the earliest reachy moves. Bolts are well spaced, nothing too spooky for a bulgy route. Go left at the top. Fun!
