An interesting climb with a variety of moves.
I found the crux, exiting the hand crack onto the face above, to be considerably harder than 5.9.
Gear: Aliens and Camalots to #3 or #4.
Belay from the top and walk off left, past Tarot Wall, and back down the path to the start.

|5.9 seemed about on for what I did, and the crux was a high step, leaving the crack... however. Rather than go up through the tunnel which is presently jammed with a large rock and appears to be impassible, we traversed left under it and finished on Marquis De Sade. This was interesting and added a second crux, maybe 5.9+.|

I believe if the crux is done correctly then it's a 5.9. But if your sequence is off, it becomes a lot harder. When I led it today, I was off and took two nice whips then pulled it. Later I TR'd it and walked up it. Fun climb!
I also skipped the tunnel due to the blocking blocks and finished on Marquis De Sade. That made for a real nice pull of the roof.
