Def hard for 5.9. Very sequencey. If you don't find/can't reach (blindly) the hidden left handhold, the route suddenly takes on a 5.10 feel! Also, at 5'6", I can't reach the second clip from the bomber stance with big feet that my 6'1" partner could--I had to make two insecure intermediate moves (pretty much the crux for me) and a fall looked like it could possibly result in hitting the ledge below. Yikes!
