Start part way up the gully below a small roof and slab. Awkward moves get you onto the slab and straightforward edges take you to the meat of the route. A brief moment of heroic thuggery gets you through the crux and back onto good holds. Trend right up the arete, still on good holds/jugs, to a tricky little sequence right below the anchors. Be sure to extend the fifth draw quite a long way or risk short, hard catches if you come off the top moves. Those on the plus side of the ape-index will have an easier time.
The obvious arete above the left side of the gully between Walk the Plank and Crow's Nest's namesake.
