I thought the best start was to the right of the arete, belaying high off of gear. Spicy and very committing, but with rests. A great route if you are looking for one more pitch at the end of a hot day (goes into the shade late).
With a 60m rope you get to a lowish angle "butt wedge" descent about 20' off the ground. Alternately you could rap to a tree and with wrap your rope around the tree or add some tat.
NOTE: The above mentions starting "to the right of the arete", I believe this is a mistake on my part. We belayed high to the LEFT of the arete. The lead then crosses over the arete to the right side.
