Felt easier than 5.7. Definitely easier than Brinton's, PushMi Pull-Yu, Coatimundi, Peters Project...
Great pro. Would be nice if it was longer though. :)

I thought it was harder than Brinton's for me, at least the one or two moves getting from the ledge just a few feet off the start to the alcove, those moves definitely felt stiff 5.6 with poor feet, though there is a wide array of available protection the entire route.
For the crux, you can easily have a bomber cam at crotch height and a small, but well placed nut at chest height that will keep you off the ground if you blow it.
Oh yeah, the wasps were a second crux 2/3 the way up - slotting a nut into a crack filled with wasps very, very carefully with another 3 or 4 crawling over the hand that is holding on is a delicate operation.
