A fun route, a bit soft for the 5.9 grade though.
It is unfortunate but there are no rings in the anchors. Would be nice for rappeling. And the anchors are just below the edge of safety on the top.
I would grade this a hard 5.8.

I felt the inside of the hangers with my hand last time I was up there and noticed they didn't feel too harsh, but I still didn't want to run my rope through it. Good to know, I'll remember it next time.
