I would rate this one as slightly harder than its neighbor Wayward Son, if only because the stance to clip the third bolt is right at the crux. It'll catch you off guard if 5.9 is right around your limit for sport leads.

Most of the route is 5.8 or easier. From the second to fourth bolt is 5.9, with the crux just before the third bolt. There's a couple of moves there that are probably 5.9+. If you're ok with a 5.9 lead, and want to push yourself, this is definitely a good route to do it.
