I always chuckle when I see a pile of rocks at the base of this crack. Even cheating, this bouldery start is difficult! Think 5.11a or b is fair. Very height dependent.
When i was first working this route, The first fingerlock to get off the ground made my pinkie finger go numb for about a week. On the upper angling crack, I think it's a bit easier but more committing to "walk the plank" rather than finger traverse it. This may be the best pitch at PG.

Yeah it's definitely not over when you're off the ground. The rock pile could help get you started in the crack if you can't reach it, but you've got some moves to do after that.
10.d is a funny grade. I wouldn't argue with .10d, but I'd also agree on your .11-
