4 out of 5 stars Pretty challenging 5.9

My biggest advice is when encountering the bulge near the first bolt, get your hands matched out right and bring your left toe way up high on the little flint black triangle poking out of the bulge. Mantel up and you've gotten it pretty much climbed!

4 out of 5 stars Mantle

Seems harder than 5.9 with that difficult mantle over the bulge. Thought the route just to the right of it was far easier.
