Low feet spanning the arete off of a shallow left crimp and a decent right crimp. Left foot up on the arete, slap up with the left hand, or, if you're taller gun for the rail. Once you hit the rail, it's over. Watch the top-out though - it's a little loose and needs cleaning. Sit-start variation goes much harder, maybe V5.

This is not a new route either. It is Rob's Arete. FA by Rob Hilko.

I did this one dangling off the arete to the left. Maybe it was cheating? Whatever, it was fun.
