Really fun problem that makes use of the varied holds on S&M's backside.
Start crouched at the base of the arete on matched hands. Continue up the arete using all available holds until you reach the top out jug (avoiding vegetation at top).
If desired, you could make this harder by using just the holds on the arete (but the dead tree makes this somewhat difficult at the moment).


The tree makes things tight and it should be padded - a spotter moving a half pad works nicely.
