|I seem to (dimly) recall that its a bit R or PG rated to get to the crack, even though there's a bolt for pro? Great route.|

A most peculiar start that's not easy to figure out by looking at it.
Go to the right of the bolt, work your way up, find a hidden crimp to reach the crack with your left hand.
Don't go to the left of the bolt. Tried that variation several times at full extension and took several 10-footers.

|Right start is slabby, harder than 5.8, definitely PG13. After the start, the crack is 5.8 and then eases off. Don't bother unless you're just seeking spice.|

Good route. Pretty much 5.8 after the hard start. Can't speak for the right variation but the direct line is definitely PG-13/R after clipping the bolt. Slab beneath you could definitely ruin your weekend/season if you fall.
Beta: I started to go right at the bolt (as Charlie states) as the holds looked a lot better but it felt way more insecure reaching left to the crack. Climbed down and went left of the bolt through some descent feet and a sweet undercling to reach the crack. Probably 10+/11-. YMMV
