Description 

In the center of Bob's Rock, there is an obvious lieback flake to start (crux) that continues to an angling crack to a dihedral.

Location 

This goes up the middle of the face.

Protection 

2 bolts atop the dihedral, bring a medium sized rack, nothing bigger than 3 inches.

For me, the crux was the first few moves get to above the little roof.

Rock is pretty hollow at the start. Maybe not the best 5.9 for a 5.9 leader due to rock quality and nature of gear placements. Be solid at the grade and enjoy!

I would've been happier with a #5 Camalot to protect the upper dihedral.
