Rapping down the 5.7 TR (but along the 5.9 route).  From the ledge, looking down.  This was taken from a TR I set up for the 5.7, but the view down is the same for both routes.  If the pool at the base of the route is full, you will have to mantel up this boulder and traverse right to start.  This is when a static rope really helps (else you stretch the rope and fall into the pool).  The bolts at the top of the route.  I described this setup within my comments on the route itself.  A better shot of the routes.  You can TR or trad the 5.9 to the right; there really isn't anywhere to place pro for the 5.7 route, so it's TR only.
