Start off on a tough boulderly move (V2) in the crack to gain the arete. Climb the rest of the arete on good handholds to the anchors.

Skip the V2 bouldery start altogether. Just jump for the positive ledge and swing those feet up. Better stick it first try or you'll be donating a couple of layers of skin and some blood to the CWC rock. Once you stick that HUGE pocket on the left your basically done. Don't be tempted to stem out to the left as this makes it conisiderably easier.
