Look like some home-made hangers.
Left start is ~10a, starting on the right keeps it 5.9

Not 5.9 unless today I was completely off form. More like 5.10b or c for me considering how much I flailed.

Thank you, Chris! Most of these routes seem like TOTAL sandbags. Maybe a bunch of holds broke off? These little buggers are hard. I've started calling this area The Wall of a Hundred Sandbags. Folks should go in expecting stuff to be under rated by one number, give or take. Grrrrr...
