This felt hard in the grade, but I haven't climbed too many 5.9's at the New. The crux was about half way up after the wide section, if I remember correctly - there is a bit of a bulge with tight hands. The rest is solid hands. Good pro throughout.
As straight forward as it gets! Hand Jam your all the way to the top! At the time I was pretty new at crack climbing so it was a little on the stiff side for me, but with enough determination made it to the top! Eats up medium size gear, bring doubles of .75-2's if you want to stitch it up. Lay backing works, but its quite a work out if you decide to climb it that way.
