Climb a 5.9 move to get to the first bolt, then head up the face via easier climbing to the anchor.
This is the third route from the left.

This isn't a 5.9- start. More like 10b. After that, sure, I'd call it 5.9-.

I agree, a harder (5.10a/b) move off the ground, then easier than 5.9.

I'm fairly certain grades were meant to go based on the hardest moves and not the easiest moves. By that logic, the grade should be somewhere in the 10s, not 9-. A 5.9 leader will not be able to make those first few moves.
