Aid up the seam on small gear, expecting an exciting finish. This route goes hammerles, but a couple of pins up top to rap off of might be nice. The descent we chose was to top out on the slabs and essentially walk off. This was okay, but not entirely pleasant. You can also top out on the slabs and walk up and left to the base of Sunset Arete.
I'm not sure if it has been freed yet, but it certainly seems possible (by better climbers than me). There is no convenient way to TR this route, and the options for a gear anchor are only so-so.
If this route was longer, or if the approach was quicker, this might be a two-star route. When it goes free it will certainly be two-stars!
