Description 

Sequential climbing on good holds. This would be a 5.10 if it were farther left on the wall where the angle is easier.

More bouldery than endurance dependant.

Location 

Right end of the 5.10 wall (Opposite end from AWOL)

Protection 

Bolts

Given the same holds and moves, of course it would be 5.10 if it was less overhanging, If it was slabby, it'd be 5.8.
But it is 5.12, and it's a really good route. The crux is basically a 3-bolt, V4 boulder problem, followed by some 5.10 jug hauling and a few moves of 5.11 up higher. Do it.
