4 out of 5 stars Close to a 5.9

Felt harder than do it again, but i lead this right after i attempted silver streak and took some good falls. fun route well protected, would do it again. Good for the new leader.

4 out of 5 stars The Best Not-Quite-5.9

There is one move 3/4 of the way to the top that can catch you off-guard. This is probably the spot where the pro is recommended. Feels more like a solid 5.9 move.
