Stellar compression problem. Start laying very low under the steep arete. Grab the two lowest holds, pull on and climb. The first three moves are the crux followed by a few moderate moves to a reachy final move off of an edge to reach the top.

Blake cleaned and worked out this problem. He showed it to me and I managed the FA. He did it immediately after me.

The start on this problem can be confusing. Start on the absolute lowest holds on the overhanging arete. If you start on the two holds higher this reduces the difficulty to around V5 or 6.

It's kind of hard to tell where to top out based on this description. I did find a good edge out right, but thought that was the top out for the 6. Also there's a slopey pocket on the face straight up. And there are powerful undercling moves and a crimp seam out left. Clarification?

You work into the undercling on the right face and go straight up from there. You'll be standing directly on top of the slopey rail. There's video of it at the following link:

It's the 2nd problem beginning at about 0:46. Hope this clarifies it a bit!
