|A very chossy, awkward climb. One 5.9 move through the roof and it's over.|

I don't think I understand the rules for this route. I can make it either a hard 5.10 or a 5.8, depending on which holds I decide are on. What I don't find is a 5.9 - do I just not see it?
This route was once called "Nutscratcher" (S&Z 1970).

|We did this route today because it was there and we were too lazy to move the rope after climbing the Horse. Both of us actually liked it a lot more than everybody else. No problems at all with rock quality. The bottom slab went well and we pushed through the crack at the top. We weren't sure which of the two vertical crack lines to go for, so I went straight up over a small roof.|
