nice climb. my favorite of the Sandrock trip. really interesting move toward the top, really the only 5.9 move on the route. Good fun, pretty straightforward

4 out of 5 stars Just fun

The moves are straightforward, feet are good, and route is probably not 5.9 if you go left at all. There is one 5.9 move towards the top if you go straight up, but you can cheat it by zigging left. Great gear everywhere. Just fun, fun, fun.
