There's no move harder than 5.9 at The Tor.

That's what I meant. Lots of 5.9 moves, with a 5.9 crux at the end.

I started working on this route last Saturday at the behest of Phil. I haven't tried every route at the Tor, but I can't imagine things get much better than this rig. I've rarely had so much fun climbing (and falling) on a route.

A note to those working the line: your right hand gets WORKED. There's really no "rest" for your right hand till you get near the top, and by that time things look pretty grim. Climb fast.
