Easier than 5.9- we thought today...

felt more like an easy 5.8...

the friction moves are probably no harder than 5.8 in the daytime... makes for an exciting nighttime lead! I started in the hand crack on the right side of the formation. There were two bolts, and build an anchor at the top with mostly medium pieces (#0.75-2 C4 iirc).

Although the walkoff/downclimb was confusing and scary at night(went up and to the left on a slab around a large summit block/face and downclimbed two short sections; probably totally wrong)... not sure where it is supposed to go...
