Realistically, this problem is a squeeze job, as the Jug start for High Water Mark is only about 6 inches above the sloping pinch... Still quite possibly the most enjoyable line here.

Start sitting on the left side of the face, directly right of the pointy rock. Right hand in the good crimp, left hand on the best part of the seam out left. Tough move to a sloping pinch on the arete, right up to your choice of slick crystals, and left to another pinch on/just below the arete. Easier terrain to top.

The first three moves are distinctly difficult to link.

Until someone shifts that massive pointy rock, several pads are necessary.
