SDS on a small rock at the base at opposing sidepulls and then work incut edges up and left moving onto the arete proper. Once standing work back right via a balancy high-step move and then mantle up onto a shelf below the top. A quick reach and easy mantle caps off the problem.
- This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area.
