Start is harder than 5.8 and climbing the left face of the arete requires balance.
More difficult than Antivenin, probably 5.9 Mar 7, 2016
I agree with Sergio. I've heard the guidebook calls this 5.8, but it's harder than the other 5.8 routes here. Get on this one and expect 5.9.

ETA: I saw someone lead this and then clip the anchors of Antivenin. That might explain why some call this 5.8, as it's easier and more intuitive to reach those anchors. Oct 23, 2016
