Very fun 5.9 once you clip the second quick draw I think the crux is over. Just don't fall in the middle of clipping the 2nd bolt. lol One of my favorite 5.9's in Queen Creek area.

Good moderate consistent climb of ~85ft. 60m rope covers it. The crux is probably the first move as you look for hand holds. That's probably why the first bolt is low - Giggling Marlin is right of KGB 5.10a and left of Bunny slope 5.8. Acnhors are 2 bolts with chains.

I agree that the crux is around the first bolt (a few others thought 2nd to last bolt, maybe a height thing?)...cruiser after that. Fun route.
