|Please don't take my protection advice literally. I soloed this route and only have moderate trad experience. Please use care rapping down P1, cause this pitch is quite tall. Options would include bailing to climbers left or right and raping from trees.|

Sachem 5.9 R
This route climbs the right side of the main slab through the obvious headwalls.
P1: start up the featured slab passing a couple small birch trees. Continue up the slab to the left arching corner. Get great gear and pull onto the headwall following a trail of pockets. Pull the crux rock over move onto a lower angle slab and continue up the a headwall with a horizontal crack. Traverse right and belay from the tree. 150' 5.7 R
P2: Pull through the headwall at the crack in front of the belay tree onto the low angle slab (crux). Traverse left passing an often wet crack to the far left of the second headwall. Pull into a left facing corner (second crux) and then trend up and right to a tree ledge with a boulder and belay. 5.9. 130'
P3: Continue up the brown water groove to the top of the cliff and trees above. 5.4 PG-13. 110'
Walk back and right to the hiking trail.

|chinos, are you describing the same route or another? I am asking as the submitter of this route rated it 5.5 and you 5.9|

|This is the same route. tom did a wandering first pitch at 5.5. We went back and straightened the line out, and added the second and third pitches.|
