Mike, you beat me by a week! I lead it yeterday not realizing it'd been done till I saw a bit of chalk and shoe scuff. I agree 5.9, maybe 9+ ...or I'm just out of shape...Turkish Delight sure made me feel like it this time!
While the initial rock quality is not great the top half the route is stellar desert varnished sandstone. I used nuts and cams to a #3camalot.

|I really like this route. Lead it, but hung, a bit out of shape. Great crack climb amidst beautiful scenery. 5.9, though for me I found the 1st half to be tricky-outta shapeness could be a factor so I'll leave the thought for rating at 5.9.|
