4 out of 5 stars sweet but sandbagged mercilessly

Clip bolts 1-4 of Use The Force Luke. use a 24" runner on bolt 4 or long draw, but you'll still get rope drag. Runout traverse to 2nd last bolt of Poison Ivy; use a long draw there. 5.9's not reasonable as for instance NH views Bolts 1-4 as the crux of Use the Force Luke (5.11) and I found that section much tougher, probably 10c. The traverse is long so I bump it upt o 10d.
