While setting up a toprope is a pain in butt, this crux section of this climb involves some interesting footwork that makes it worth the effort.
To start head up the arete using the more-formed sandstone on the right face, but occasionally using a softer foot around the corner. Work up to the undercling set about 20 feet off the ground, and then keep to the arete to the top.
There is a possible variation that would head up and right from the undercling, avoiding the arete but moving up a slopey bulge using small chips that give traction in the soft sandstone of the bulge.
I believe that the face just to the right of this climb was an existing route, but there was a small dead shrub at the top of this route that literally melted when I touched it, and also a small sized block that appeared to be a hold that pulled out, leaving a good sidepull hold.
