3 out of 5 stars Two Move wonder

Easy start...two fun moves establishing on the crack above the upper bulge. Side pull and hand jam the crack, get your feet up on the face to your left and go for it.

One of the few 5.9's I have led in Jtree (100s) I can ever remember falling on. Don't think I was ready for the reach move after pulling the roof. The route is not sustained. The first 2/3rds is 5.7, so maybe I was caught off guard at that move. Need to revisit next time. With Alfred from CA.
