Climb up right from the start of Jean on nice orange rock to the roof. Surmount the roof at a cleft a bit right of Jean. Rap or finish on Sixish.

3 out of 5 stars Felt much harder than Jean

Love the delicate traverse. The roof exit was crimp to pocket to rail. Very burly and required good foot work. Much harder than Jean.

I can find no way over the roof right of Jean that was anywhere near 5.9 Obvious cleft seemed more like 5.10b.
