It's a sport route on a trad only wall,a fun diversion.

Probably hard 10/easy 11 if you go straight up through the crimps and don't cheat right. Fun moves. Have someone else go first to brush it for you.

I don't think there is any notable protection on the route higher than the ledge 10ft off the ground. I had TR'd it and thought the top was pretty sandy. Then watched a guy start to lead it, totally freak out half way up, and bail over to calypso III.
