This is a fun route, similar in style to the other sport routes at the Hamlet. Similarly, it is bolted for someone leading the grade. It's pretty juggy through the steeper part, to a slabby topout.
Walk past the lower tier TR anchors and make an exposed 3rd class move or two to the right to get to a belay anchor, two brown painted bolts in a varnished scoop. Belay this as necessary. Follow the line of brown painted bolts up the seam to the anchor at a small stance.
6 bolts, anchor with mussy hooks, belay anchor. 60m rope fine.

The start of Rosencrantz was about 25 ft. climber's right of the last set of top rope anchors which have screw links. We belayed out to them not because of difficulty; we were wondering about the rock quality. Turns out everything is fine. Belay stance is good, bolts are solid and perfectly placed for clipping at stances. I was careful with the flakes and with where I placed my feet. A couple very small bits came off. Mussey Hooks were appreciated. Climbing is esthetic and good quality in my opinion. If it were 5.9 might be 3 stars. But at least 2 stars and well worth doing. I'd say you should be solid on 5.7 to lead it though I'd rate it 5.6
