Fun route but I couldn't find a 5.9 move on it.

It's a solid 5.9 now that a hand-hold flake about 1/3 of the way up just fell from it last week.

When I climbed this route yesterday, it actually felt easier than the 5.8 immediately to its right.

Funny how route ratings change from day to day on MP. This route has been a 5.9 since before 1995. Usually they don't get easier over the years. If anything they get harder when holds brake. Reference: The Guide by Troy Mayr and Anthony Sweeney 1995.

The route is on the left under and to left of old two bolt anchor.
