 Pizan 5.9
Top Roped.
 Solito 5.975 ft
Listed as 5.9 + in MP. Carried a number one to protect on way to very run out first bolt, dropped it, because I am a newbie, continued on without, six bolts, ledge to arete, rap, or walk off, two bolts for anchor.
Two Sundays of projecting out here paid off with three leads today and a new PR 5.9 + lead. I bought my first cam for some extra protection to the first bolt because it is pretty run out. However, my first time placing trad gear without supervision ended when I dropped it 15 feet to the ground before ever getting it up to the crack. Oh well I embrace my newbie status and it got a good laugh out of Jackie. I continued on to first bolt. The rest of the route was a little more slow and methodical than when top roping, but I sent it pretty clean. Set up a top rope for Jackie and then had her lower me.
