Good but with a poorly-protected and polished crux.
1) 4c, 20m. Climb cracks to a stance under the long groove.
2) 5b, 20m. Head up the groove to the bulge and pull past this into the upper section. Continue direct to a tree belay.

approach second pitch with confidence - you won't be able to hang about putting gear in the bulge till you're standing on the upper section.

sorry - my previous comments were meant for great cleft - another route further on!

Reasonable gear but quite stiff for the grade. Good route
