I sent the stand start to this in 2004. I started with left and right hands on opposing sidepulls, went to the dish, and then up and left to a good (but hard to see) crimp. Then straight up (without use of the right arete). It may have been an FA, but I can't be sure given how long people have climbed there.

Thanks for letting me know. I also did the stand start but used the same top out as I did in the jump start. I'm interested in trying your original way.
