Thought both of the bolted sections were harder than the route's grade, but the rest was a walkup. Difficult to grade, but I still think it is a bit of a sandbag especially considering the height dependence cruxes.

I was off the couch but found this quite spicy. Make sure you have a good selection of TCU's up to a Green camalot. The move at the top is really hard to read but once you know where the holds are it gets a lot easier. Really good (comfortable) edging shoes are imperative.
