A decent top-rope after you've done Minutia. The climbing up the arete is fun, but the line is a little contrived: you can step right off the arete, into a dihedral, at just about any point.
Climb up the arete about 15' right of the Minutia hand crack. Stay on the arete all the way to the top, then step left to the Minutia anchor.
On the left side of the Boulder Slips crag, on the arete about 15' right of the Minutia hand crack.
Top rope from the Minutia anchor. The climb would be hard to protect, but you could get pro in the dihedral around to the right (but then you'd be better off climbing the dihedral itself).

The route is fun, but the crux section is very short, only a few moves. There is a bolt anchor to the right of this climb on Pumpkin Corner.
