Another worthy 5.9 at the Playground. Fun moves on the flakes lead to cool stemming in the upper dihedral up..
Gear through the crux opening twenty feet is a bit tricky. TCUs, link cams, or big stuff (#4/#5) protect this reasonably well. I've heard small nuts get the job done as well. Anyways, it's there, you just need to be creative.
Maybe a little easier than Upper Left Roof, but more fun IMO.
