TR only, take long slings (3-4ft) to extend from anchors over the edge. There are two variations from deck to anchors. First option, 5.10b/c, climb up short face and through corner on right side of arete. Second option, 5.10a, climb up face on left side of arete.

For an even more challenging option up the Choss Tower, go straight up the arete. This variant is in 5.11 territory.
