I've never heard the arête called jingle bells before (I always called it the no-hands arête)...climbing it no-handed is a blast... it would be hard to grade due to its novelty, but I guess V4 is good enough. The west face (officially Slab V0) can also be climbed hands free, and it allows for a totally different experience at about the same difficulty as the arête.
