Bumping the left up the arete.

Description 

The obvious line up the overhanging flat prow on the right side of the alcove. Start with both hands in the horizontal crack between the lower boulder and the upper prow. Reach up and left to a shallow pocket. Heel hook and Slap up to the lip and then go left to a jug and then to the top on more good holds. A direct finish is also possible, maybe a bit easier. Going right and then up the corner and then finishing on the direct line is easier, maybe V4/V5.

Protection 

Pads and a few spotters.

Very cool line. I think finishing direct (the pocket and ripple features directly above the crimpy lip) might actually be a tad easier than left finish.

Did this climb yesterday using only holds on the right arete and topping out left. Done this way, it felt like V5 or so. This problem seems contrived given that you have to add holds in order to make it feel like the given grade.
