try climbing the routes from the ground up, don't hang dog it and give it a real rating.

all I'm saying is be real about your effort, don't cheat it-do it clean.
think of other surrounding grades and other climbers that might be at that level and so one might not get in over their heads. I've seen some climbers dog a route and then grade it from that. I don't agree with that

Agreed. Don't rate a route until you have cleanly led it.

5.9 to a short crux at the 4th bolt to some fun steep climbing. Second bolt line to the right of the spearhead.

crux is up the bolt line with-in reason, if you find yourself thinking the sideways swing might hurt- you are probably off route, if you realize the holds are small and slopy with a big reach right below the belly then you nailed it and continue up and over the mini roof for pretty fun climbing
