|Traversing as described in the route description is shorter and a bit easier, but I think the route begins at the bottom of the crack system and heads up (leftward). It takes a few pieces of pro (or a 5-10' fall).|

climbed this route today. twice.
5.9 seems a bit to generous. probably more like 5.8.
first time i placed some gear at the bottom, then clipped the bolts the rest of the way.
but then i realised that the whole route can be climbed on gear. the route eats gear the whole way up, not sure why it was bolted (when the first 15 feet need to be protected with gear ???).
either way, gear or bolts, its a great route.
