A variation of the crux sequence, staying on the arete only.  I loved this variation, although there was some loose material on the left.

I wouldn't have envisioned going into the chimney either, but I don't climb a lot of trad. I suspect, if you did, that would be the obvious route..lol. Jul 1, 2015

The 1st ascent took this line up the arete. Not sure who envisioned going into the chimney, but as Michael indicates staying on the face/arete is sweet. Both lines yield essentially the same level of difficulty. Apr 3, 2011
