Climb up and over a few steep bulges trending left. Fun climbing leads to a confounding crux that most people solve by moving left and using a few holds on the corner. If you climb this section directly, it might bump up the grade a smidge. But it is more fun to do it at 5.9. The crux involves a big move to an incut crimp that is often tick-marked.
Being the only 5.9 at the crag, it is also the best 5.9 at the crag so make sure you climb it.
Start in the same spot as The 5.8 Crack by the Road (5.7), and follow the bolts to the left up the steep face.
6 bolts to anchors (quick clips, I think).

It looks so slabby from the bottom, but doesnt feel that way while you're on it... maybe the lack of handholds. Overall, a nice Rumney-esque technique-requisite route.
