This is a fun climb with some weird clips but plenty of positive holds.

3 out of 5 stars Polished, strange moves until bolt 4

The guidebook gives this 4 stars, I give it 3. It is harder (In my opinion) than 3 quarter ton, a 10d a couple climbs to the left, many shelf regulars agree this is the "hardest 10.c they have done". But, as it is all doable for a short person, it is a worthwhile RP effort, will hone some skills for awkward moves. Post-bolt 4 the climbing is easier with really fun stemming. I am saying it is a 10.d because it has gotten very polished over the years, adding to the difficulty.
