I thought this was an intimidating step across and quite a gutsy runout by the leader in this photo. You can place pro higher up and to his left, but it will cost you drag later on in the pitch. Once established in the alcove after the step across, one can either go left (supposedly 5.8) or right (5.9) around the triangular roof. I did not find going right around roof to be 5.9, but after going up a thin crack another 25', it peters out and you need to move up and left across a blank slab to get to an easy crack. This was reminiscent of the p2 runout and all told qualifies as a 5.9.
