Description 

The first bolt is quite high but it involves 5.6 climbing if you start a little right of the line. You should still be careful since the rock at the start is blocky and some chunks could come down.
Once on the ledge, you can clip the first draw that belongs to the route on the right but as soon as you clip the second, unclip the first to reduce drag.
Moderate climbing for two more bolts.
The crux is between the 4th and 5th bolts.
The hardest move is a left hand sidepull crimp on the left side of the arete and a right hand crimp on the arete then you place your left foot on a small indentation on the arete and you roll on the left face as much as you can then reach left hand for a good shelf. The rest gets easier.

This route could have a direct start if there was a bolt that could be stick clipped.

Location 

When you get to the toe of the cliff, it's the obvious line climbing the arete.

Protection 

8 bolts + 2 ring anchor
