I wasn't exactly sure where this route was supposed to go. I stayed on the left side/arete which seemed about 5.7 on loose holds with an off balance anchor clip. Tried top roping straight up over the roof thinking that was the 5.9 route. The flake on the left side above the roof felt wobbly and hollow, so I didn't want to pull on it.
