A bit more like climbing is to not tunnel back, but stay near the lip . That goes at about 5.3. A TR or solo head recommended. A bit contrived, but very nice climbing is to layback up the slab using the arete. That goes at maybe 5.7 and a TR is very recommended as it is smearing with rounded handholds.
After visiting family in Bavaria for the Summer, Hermann wanted to show off his new found alpine skills, so got his brother to run up to Waimea with him. After relieving himself and while buttoning up his new fashionable knickers, Heinrich decided to get the better of him and leapt on to his shoulders and up the climb. Hermann ran after him, with both topping out and then doing the first free descents of the slab. Nobody is sure of the exact line of descent as it happened so fast..
