|Didn't even recognize this route existed even though I had frequented the proximate area over several years. Although it doesnt look very clean, the route itself is and has some real interesting climbing and good features. May be soft for Gunks 5.9, perhaps due to this route not being polished like some of the more popular routes.|

|Hmmm...I thought the first crux was nineish, second crux equally so. I really enjoyed the climb, but, I did think it was 9ish with two cruxes.|

This route looks terrible and dirty from the ground. But it has great, fun moves and is not nearly as dirty as it looks. Total hidden gem--get on it if you're in the area.
As far as grade, 8+/9- seems about right--agree with Jeffrey that the rock is very sticky.
