This is the overhanging section just to the left of the cleft. The holds are not very visible from below, and when you do find them they are small and sharp. the line goes straight up, passing the right edge of a small arch about 2/3 of the way up. This route seemed a lot harder than 5.9.

I thought it was a LOT harder than 5.9, with some desperate long reaches.
