Hex? Bomber .75 or #1 halfway up to the first bolt in patina cracks.
Unless you like cowbells. Steep for 10a and quite exposed, great line. The edges on top are the biggest yet skinniest patina I've yarded on at the City.

The climbing is pretty straightforward to the high first bolt. If you are comfortable with heights and a confident climber, it should not be a problem. If concerned, there are plenty of places low to plug some gear.
