Three variations (1) climb left of bolts and into the crack, (2) don't use the crack (and jug in the crack - 13a), (3) climb right of the bolts.

I'd say skip the body jam rest for the full grade. Rumor has it that this line (which is above the bolts) wasn't the intended route (which is at or below the bolts, using monos and fingery pockets, and probably about 13c)... Interesting nonetheless, and a bit of a scary, committing lead...

Used the body jam rest, probably still 12c, either way, it's a fun climb and a scary lead.
