This route can be broken into two pitches depending on where you start. Most people scramble the easy low fifth class terrain to the large belay ledge. This can be dicey though, and newer climbers might not be comfortable with it.
This route can also be hard to communicate to your belayer once you get higher up. I was once told by one of my instructors, who lives near the butte, that he could probably understand us better than climbers could each other.
