As everyone has said it is tricky if you stay on the face, but even starting on the arete isn't easy. Bolts and anchors are all solid and there's plenty of room for the belayer, just be careful of kicking the loose scree down on peoples heads along the path below the climb.
A couple hard moves to get to the first bolt starting on the face. We started there then worked to the right onto the arete. Shares an anchor with another climb, so you can get a couple quick ones to warm up
Um...the start is much tougher than 5.8 if you do it on the face instead of the arete. Maybe not an 11 but solidly in the 10's if you start on the face. I started on the face and traversed to the arete after the second bolt. This route is decent. Better than Junior to the left of it. Again, consider stick clipping the first bolt if you are going up the face.
I HATED this climb too. Spent a lot of time just trying to figure out how to get on the wall (11+ if you start the face). Afterward read that the route is up the arete. If for some strange reason you want to do a climb that sucks, go around the backside of the rock to get to the route not up the 5.5 approach.
