Smack dab in the middle sits this route - right behind the small pine tree. Follow the bolts up and try to stay off the big ledge to the right. There is a shelf right below the first bolt that marks the start.

Protection 

3 bolts and two at the top. Mid [length] slings are needed to avoid rope drag for TR

Hello! Back in 1993 some [friends] and I put in these sport routes in "Poacher's" Rock. Five Finger Discount- at the time was deemed 5.7. Have holds fallen off?

Definitely not. You would have to climb an incredibly contrived line to make this a 5.9. I used to instruct beginning climbers here for the YMCA and this was always the route we put them on first. I think it's the easiest route on the cliff.

Although beware--I did this route again a few weeks ago, and there is a big friendly hold near the top, right of the bolt line, that looks solid but is about to snap off. Still 5.7 if you avoid it though.
