The 5.9 option for P1 is interesting, though a bit dirty. Climb an awkward lieback jam that quickly becomes an bit of an offwidth (Bring a #5 Camalot to slide up this part). I found it best to stay left-side in and you find some features on your right to work with. Continue up to where it levels out and thin lieback around the corner to gain the belay to start P2. Gear at the lieback is a bit suspect.
The P2 OW crux can be protected by pushing a #5 Camalot, though it is pretty unstable. A pushing a #6 Camalot would make that section very comfy.
