A very fun route. I highly recommend it. 5.8-ish?? (I'm not so good at rating slabs.) The rap down was a little interesting. The anchors were just shy of a doubled 60M rope on the 2nd rap. You can hop over to a set of trees and then down-climb to the last set of anchors. You can't hit the ground from them either on a 60M and have to head off to the left. A 70M rope would solve this issue, though you may still have to end off to the left on the last rap.
This route is also in dire need of a couple sets of lockers/chains/rap rings on a couple of the anchors.
On the third pitch, my partner lead it direct, up the crack and small roof rather than following the left side dihedral to a bolt. This pushed the rating in the 5.9 region.
