First Ascent party called the route 5.6. I have only climbed Exodus which shares the first bolt or two; however, I remember the start of that route feeling at least 5.8 and perhaps harder. Please share your thoughts about an appropriate grade for Dust Bunnies.

Not 5.6 at all. More like mid 10 Wheeler style

Finally got on this route today--the initial overhang is definitely 5.10-. Midway up the route, the climber is forced to pull on loose, hollow-sounding flakes for over a body-length of climbing. If a hold were to break, you'd take a huge, swinging fall. Scared the s*#t out of me.

Regarding the anchor: the bolt with the quick link looks good but the bolt with the open shut moves in its hole.
