It's only 5.9!
Let me tell you something son. 5.9 in aids boots at the end of day 2 is pretty damn hard, but when the rest of the route is overhanging 14a tips, the 5.9 looks like 5.7. It wasn't. I was dead tired by this point and only free climbed like 50 feet up. The bolts are there because the flake you are climbing is so thin it will snap under the weight of a cam. The bags above are of Kate and Melissa. We caught up to them and got to hang out with them on summit day.
