I would give this an X but I don't think you would die. . I have no idea how Doug hooked through the start in 75' and Jim's brilliant ffa was stunning.
Perfect stone, almost no gear and hard moves.
Move up past several bolts to a stance at the mini flake, gear up and go for it. The crux isn't TOO far up , but a fall from just below the ledge would be bad
Start up Diagonal to bolted belay. work up and left past a couple of bolts to the mini flake on a bulge.
A few bolts at the start then gear up the mini-flake and go for broke above to a good ledge.

Held Doug's many whippers on the first ascent which was taken from his final hook move before compleating the crux pitch.
