Gets 6a+ in local guide and I think even that is lenient. The tough bit is awkward laybacking towards the top, had one slip which was annoying. Top roped after rope was in place after Cantolandia.

Local guidebook said 6a+, which I'd say was fair.

Fantastic route, brilliant jamming crack. Undergraded, no 6a moves but sustained enough to warrant it. Best route of our trip.
