Just right of Pig Tree, start in the dihedral and pull moderate .10d moves to a thin face and seam at the last three bolts. The original route stays left of the arete, on the face, using the arete for the occasional hold. Cutting right directly onto the arete and onto the slab will make the route easier for some. The crux is the 2nd to last bolt. The holds on Pig Tree are off route.

My quick summary would be the bottom crack is awkward and not much fun but then you pull onto a really nice face and then do some sweet arete moves back to some sweet face moves at the top. I think it's one of the better climbs (upper portion at least) on the wall but people seem to avoid it for some reason.
