The upper arete section of the climb was very airy and exciting, and--while less burly than the finger crack section--still held the grade from my point of view.  Transitioning into the upper part of the climb was certainly a challenge for me, as was finding a good stance for gear placement.  I thought the start was pretty tricky and not particularly easy to execute.  This is clearly NOT the 5.8 variation.  I would guess 5.9 at least, even with a little arboreal assistance.  Notice the line to the right of climber, going up the corner.  I believe that is the 5.8 variation, but I had it my way! :-)
