The historic "official" difficulty grade is 5.8
The historic route description was:
"Up slab to overhang 6í right of right facing corner. Climb straight to the ramp. Go over head wall with green lichen and up to clump of trees and step right to rap/belay station. A very sharp edge over the green headwall can do some rope damage so plan and adjust accordingly."
But now as of 2012, there seems to be two distinct bolt lines on or near this route -- see Comments below.
The historic Start description was:
Climb overhang 6í right of Know the Code opening right facing corner about 60 feet from the southern end of the cliff."
Bolts -- years ago there were 10 bolts, but I haven't checked to see if that count is still accurate.

Now to me there seems to be two distinct bolt lines on or near this route (as of 2012).
The "Dr Death" name painted under the left line has been crossed out, and the newer painted name saying "Dr Death" has an arrow pointing toward the right line of bolts.
The bolt+chain anchor at the top of the left line has painted by it "Know the Code". So I guess perhaps here on MountainProject we could call the left line either "Dr Death Left" or "Know the Code Right".
I'd say the lower section of the right line has a distinct overhang with more positive holds - (? so perhaps that's become more popular and so has taken over as the main route ?)
