BETA PHOTO: Hard moves on thin holds

Description 

One of the newer hard problems in the area, this is unfortunately only climbable when the stream dries up and the lagoon in the pit is gone. Starting in the pit, climb the steep face on bad crimps and pinches until you can reach around the left arete to a sidepull flake before finishing up. You may want to pad the low angle slab behind you in case of a backflop.

Location 

This problem climbs the overhanging face left of Kalbro. Climb the into the pit to reach the start.

Protection 

Pads, spotter

Can anybody offer up more details about how this line starts and what the general line of travel is? Do you immediately move left from the start to the arete or is it more diagonal?

If I remember correctly, it starts standing on the lowest usable hold and stays on the face, climbing diagonally up to the sidepull around the arete up high.

As an addition to Christian's question: after gaining the arete, do you commit to that heinous and terrifying direct top out or traverse the arete right a bit to the lip. To me, it looks like traversing the lip would make at less sketchy, less difficult, less contrived, and better. However, if that's not the case I would love to hear about it.
