This route is more fun than Hobbes to the right that starts out the same.

Some nice slab moves in the middle section.

The very strenuous moves from the ground up to the 3rd bolt make this a 5.9 IMO. It seemed like the intended line was right of the 2nd bolt, but I couldn't find any holds there, so I went left. The upper section was easier and more enjoyable, particularly the slab parts.

Pulling up over the bulge at the second bolt is not 5.8. 5.9- or 5.9 is closer.
