Mark at the roof.
This is the bolted line left of "Honey, I Shrunk the Hemorrhoids" that passes through the right side of a 3' roof.
I found this route contrived - if you follow the exact line of the bolts, it is probably much harder than 5.9. However, if you stay 3' farther right near a corner, it is a lot easier, maybe not even 5.9 (this avoids the big roof completely). Above the roof, move left to a 2 bolt anchor (one with missing hanger). Hubbel's guide shows this anchor as the end of the route, but somebody has added 2 more bolts and a top anchor to make an enjoyable finish.
8 or 9 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

The slab below the big roof is interesting, especially for N Table, where slab climbing is relatively absent. The route is longer than most at Table, so I found it to be pretty enjoyable.

Contrived, but still fun. 10b or so if you follow the bolt line over the right side of the roof.

....New anchor and bolts added several years ago to make a much more enjoyable climb.

Also found the route to be a little contrived. Heel hooked over the roof just to make it a bit more interesting.

Not a bad route if you stick to the slabby stuff climbing directly over the bolts and then pull the roof without bailing out right. If you stay to the right of the route all the way, I would probably say about 5.7 or 5.8.
