Crux is the start, at least for my sub-six-foot frame. Long reach (throw) to small edge, and some more thin moves at the bottom. Start was considerably easier for my 6'4" partner.
Had this one in the wrong spot. This starts at the dish-shaped feature between Mr. Meanor and Mug Shot.
Gear with a couple bolts and chain anchors.

just bring a set of nuts, there is one placement on this route and its a medium sized nut, or a small tcu or alien if you like

I concur with the nut placement. It's a good idea. Otherwise it would be a bit run out.

#3 nut to supplement the 3 bolts. Cool bowl feature at the start.

Great little number....5.9 may be a bit stiff other than the start....pretty straight forward and protects great.

Fun crux start with an easier (3' to the right), harder (semi-direct 1.5' to the right), and hardest (direct) way to do it which I feel go at 5.8+(9-), 5.9-(9), and 5.9+(10a). After the start it is sustained 5.8+ crimping with a second easier crux through a bulge halfway up. Super-fun!
Takes a #7 (yellow)(and/or #6) BD Stopper and a #1 DMM torque nut like the crack was made for them...
