this climb has zero moves in the 5.9 range. Whilst internets-ing around trying to figure out which climbs we had stumbled onto the other day, I found this gem on SummitPost:

"Ted Shred 5.9, trad. This route is the closest to the parking area and easy to recognize by its continuous finger crack. Don't use abundant face holds around the crack if you want to preserve its 5.9 rating. I haven't climbed that route yet."

We climbed the Mountaineer's Route on Whitney the next day, and, finding no MP page for it and assuming that the above rating technique applied to all climbs in the Lone Pine vicinity, we rated it V 5.10 A4. This rating, of course, assumes that climbers will avoid the moderate snow couloir...

Ted Shred is a 5.7 face climb with many optional crack moves and ample traditional protection opportunities. Small pro to .5"

Here, here! I rated this climb 5.7+. Climb the face but use the crack for pro.

Looking at the wall, this crack just begs to be climbed. Good one for the grade.
You can do it with or without using the crack, really. Agreed, crack takes good pro.

I think 5.8 is fair, but the start is the crux. Once you're up a few feet, easy and fun. 5.7 ish.
