Description [Suggest Change]
The Grunt is number 2 in the diagram below. It's only a "Grunt" for a couple of body lengths, with the rest being a pleasant hand-ish dihedral crack. Ascend the obvious right-leaning OW on the left side of the alcove, between "5.9 Route" and "Alcove 5.9 Route". Either start at the bottom of the OW or undercling a flake to gain access. Either way, the crux is the first couple of bodylengths above the flake. Continue up the dihedral to the same anchor as the 5.9 routes to the left and right.

Camalots #1-5 (including #4.5) will sew it up. The top section would also take some stoppers or hexes if you're so inclined.
