Start 15 ft right of the Slippery When Wet crack. Make a few thin moves up to a nice horizontal, continue up and left to another horizontal and up to the top.

This is actually a really nice and adequately protectable lead for someone solid in the grade. I think I used a couple c4's in horizontals with a green alien to protect the crux.

Yup...and an attentive belayer standing close to the cliff with no slack in the rope. If you were to blow it at the second horizontal before placing gear you would deck. But as you said, it shouldn't be a problem for a solid 5.9 leader.
There are a number of good leads at Ross that seldom get led. Maybe Connecticut top-rope mentality or maybe because Nichols chopped the few supplemental bolts needed to make a run-out lead a safe one.
