Start with both hands on the arete in low, good holds. Work up the arete via gaston and left face crimps to jug right on the arete. Go left onto the face to finish up. An interesting inside heel hook adds the extra core tension to surf out onto the little holds.

Another good variation is to work further left on the face after you hit the good jug. Adds a nice horzontal dyno.

This is a great problem. The hard moves are low to the ground, so the top out is not bad.

One of the key holds broke off on this problem (in John's right hand in the picture). I used the small starting holds on arete to a dyno right hand on jug. The problem may be a bit more difficult now.

Man mike, you're on a hold breaking spree!

In its current state this problem felt about as hard as The Loner for me, and definitely harder than Only the Lonely. If it matters, I went to the start holds to a left hand crimp on the face, then dynoed to the good hold on the arete.
