This is a cool problem with mostly good handholds and thinner feet most of the time.
Move up small huecos to the top of the arete. trend left around the corner to the steep left side and top out on thin crimps but with a great heelhook.
This is the down hill arete on the second warm up boulder that is just above the trail as it heads back to the gully. Start from the lowest good hueco edges.
Pads and spotter. There is a built up ledge below the top of this problem but if you fall you will land near the back edge of it and so a spot to keep you from teetering of the edge is nice.

I think this is the bloody tissue problem FA Jake R at the mild goading of his future wife.
