I'm just Happy to be at the Tor

Description 

This route is a solid test piece and the best route of its grade at the Tor. The movement will definitely make you Happy and none of the moves are harder than 5.9, but they stack up quick. With a crux at the end and a lot of different ways to pull it you will be happy to lower off and tie back in and try it again. The best way I've found to do it is just "Lock It Off".


Location 

Furthest route left, on top of the highest terrace.

Unless I'm mistaken, isn't this the ONLY route of its grade at the Tor? I'm not up-to-date on the new routes.

60% of the time the moves feel like 5.9 everytime.
