This is a nice lead; the meandering aspects make it more interesting than the typical straight-up route. Two hints that will make life easier:
1. Sling your pro well, or the rope drag will be unbearable. Bring at least a couple of double-length slings.
2. Take enough webbing or the like to extend the anchor over the edge of the cliff, or you're likely to really trash your rope.

I would rate this route a 5.9 if you start in the crack in the left facing corner. The pro is tricky on this route and at some of the cruxes utilizes very small nuts and aliens. Double length slings are a must. In my opinion, the route should be give at least 2 stars.
The route in my opinion is more technical with gear placement than Lucky Strikes and on lead is equally as good.
