The crimpfest to the climber's left of Farewell to Arms. Originally established at 5.12+, holds have broken to make it harder.

Follow the bolt line up in a sea of crimps (and a couple of pockets). Rest where you can because the climbing only gets harder. More obvious crimps will take you to the left of the bolt line near the top, with a heartbreaking crux at the last bolt as you dance into a seam that takes you to the anchor stance. Congratulations!

According to the guidebook, copping out to the arete before clipping the last bolt lowers the difficulty to 13a.
