This is as great a route as Lizard Marmalade Direct. That said, it's much harder, with the crux (I think) being a face move after you clip the second bolt. It's very safe. You can sew up the 5.10+ crack climbing below the bolts, or fall 30 feet onto the bolts and not hit a thing. That said, bring a 0.5 tricam or other tricky stuff to protect the 5.9 after the crux. This is a rare crack climb on Mt Lemmon, and a gem.
