The line saw a psuedo-free ascent last night: Bryson Slothower, 6/16/03 (with gear in place after I lowered off). This route will be rated 5.11c (5.10a, S) and is going to be a booger to-on-sight. The gear at the crux is not all good, but there is a lot of it, Getting it in and set well off of the available holds on that overhang is rough. As well, the crux is a long or very strenuous move- at 6'2" my partner still had to dead-point. I got the move static 3X now, but it burns.
This line is MUCH steeper than it looks.
This line is a great line. The upper section still needs some cleaning of lichen, and possibly of a few small flakes, save that, it is steep and challenging. I'd like to hear from some additional climbers about this one.
5.11b or 5.11c. That's for a red point though, and I think an onsight will be very elusive. I can't grade it for an onsight though, as I did not do it. It still has yet to be lead without a fall while placing the gear.
After the crux there is 20 feet of climbing (progressively easier from 5.10a) without good gear. The fall should be clean due to having passed the overhang, but don't test it.

...Third Time is on the left side of the formation.... The route has a short but stout crux on some what questionable gear followed by a 5.10- runout on friable lichen covered rock. Good gear can be placed from a large hold just after making the crux move, but then it's pretty much runout to the top.
