Stand start on obvious arete. Left hand on crimp, right on rail. Work up small pockets to top out.

The natural line on this is more like V0. Using the pockets is contrived, since it's easy to go straight past them without using them,.

Sam first did it when he was under 4ft so the pockets worked for him...I'm sure it would be easier now that he's 5'4
