Just climbed this route. Fun climb, but got the knees shaking after the first bolt! Spotter should be ready to catch. Oct 17, 2016

This is the first route I (tried) to climb at The Palace, and it sure felt harder than a 5.9 to me. I had to back-off what I assume is the crux before getting to the second bolt for fear of decking. That's a rough section. I climbed Churchill Rejects, Sunday Times, and The Scepter the same day, and none of them felt as hard as the lower section of this route. My partner attempted it too, came off halfway between the first and second bolt, and almost hit the deck (feet touched the floor). This was despite me having almost no slack out and dropping down to catch him (and I'm the heavier one, by a lot). So to anyone leading around 5.9 and looking to try this route, be careful.
