only 2 hard moves on here, but harder if you are shorter. Roof move is fun

I jumped on this not knowing what it was. The obvious thing to do was to step right and climb the line of jugs. Given this way it was 5.1 or so. It would have to be an eliminate to be 5.9. Fun, but so short that its almost silly that it was bolted.

Felt more like 5.8. The rock at the top looked kinda suspect but was actually pretty solid.
