Excellent line, sustained and engaging the whole way. Probably 3.5 stars, so far my favorite edging fest in Snow (better than the stuff on the Aftershock wall).
I think the climbing through first three bolts warrants 11b. It's all about long moves on very thin holds and none of that sweet patina to crimp on, only sandy sloppy crimps and bad feet. Things ease up quite a bit in the upper half but the climbing remains through provoking all the way. The 9th (last) bolt (didn't see a fixed pin) and the anchor are amusing old school trinkets and could use an update.
It's probably worth stick clipping the 1st bolt, you'd have to be taller than 6' to clip it from the ledge and getting to the 2nd bolt may very well be the crux.
