NOTE: This climb originally stayed on the bolt line up the arete proper. Hence the 5.9 grade. The vegetation and lichen to the left is now gone and has revealed much better (bigger) holds. Most folks now move left around the arete to the slab and much easier holds. If climbing this var. The grade is more like 5.6 This is not the worlds easiest 5.9. Nov 3, 2009

I find this route a little bit confusing. Once you reach the ledge at ~10ft at move left onto the arete, the climb is quite easy. For me, this is true even if I climb directly under the bolts (maybe I use feet that were originally covered in moss?).

On the other hand, has anybody went up the face to the right of the bolts? I played a little bit on this and it seems thin and boulder-ey, but potentially do-able. May 21, 2015

Obviously the pure line is the easiest way possible, which you are entitled to think is easier than 5.9. Staying right of the bolts is an eliminate and has been done before. May 22, 2015
