If this is the route with the crummy first half to 3 bolts, it ain't 5.9.

Start in the groove, with a low piece that isn't much help. Pick your holds well after that, 'cause I pulled down a head sized piece that could have kilt somebodies. After the cruft, clip the bolt you can't see from the ground and make cool moves on positive holds. Dosey-doe and clip the second bolt. A couple of moves to the third and settle into a (currently) crumbly foot hold. Hold it together until the anchor and you've ticked another "classic".
