Climbed the Hawk in 2000. My partner is a really strong free climber so he led both of those pitches and I followed them free. Aside from that aidable move off the belay mentioned above, the climbing certainly is not 10c but maybe 9+/10- and anything too hard is protected, and everything else is not. The bolts had just been replaced as well. I don't remember any loose rock; we thought the climbing was really quality and fun, which is why after leading he told me I should follow the pitch, and that was more fun than jugging up a traversing slab. Probably the "hard" part is the mental transition from being on overhanging rock in aiders for a few days, to free climbing a featured slab.
