An easy fun route for beginners. I have a hard time believing this is a 5.9+. My 12-year-old brother-in-law climbed it with normal tennis shoes without too many issues. Tons of places for both hands and feet, put your hand or foot on the wall halfway to the first bolt and there will be something for you to grab.
