DescriptionOur interpretation is that you climb up the face to the roof at which point you swing out onto the arete and reach way up (crux) for a good hold. Finish by coming back toward the center of the face.
ProtectionSet up an anchor that reduces the pendulum potential as much as possible. You'll need some #2 Friends, a #1 Friend, stoppers, or the like plus some 5 foot slings and runners for equalization. ;-) It looks like someone has drilled holes for bolts, but hasn't put them in yet.
Eds. there are now 4 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor. You could use a finger-sized cam. The right anchor has now been fixed.
