Slopers, non-existent footholds, and the ever present need to squeeze make this a somewhat fun if not frustrating problem that might just make your chest ache. Stand start on the Illmob face with a good crescent sloper below the crack for your left hand and a bad sloper on the right. Starting is reach dependent, so shorter climbers might not be able to span the holds, but using the arete is a no-no if you can actually reach that far. Work the technical feet on micro-edges and smears, then slap up left hand to a slopey sidepull in the short dihedral. Finish straight up.
On the face with the spraypaint, immediately left of Illmob. Downclimb the slab away from the trail.
