The difficulty of this route is wing-span dependent. I would expect ratings to vary from 5.10 to 5.11.
An oddity here is that the original rating given to this route was F10B in Widule & Swartling's first edition of the Climber's Guide to Devil's Lake. "The Flatiron" was given as the standard for F10B, and in the second edition this translates into anything from 5.11a to 5.11d. In the current edition this route is rated a mild 5.10a!
Personally, I would estimate this route is something like 5.10d/5.11a.
