Climb the north-facing arête closest to the Flathead Boulder. Set up using TR with slings. Difficult balance and power combo problem. Watch swing into the Flathead boulder.

Uses slings and top rope in the crack just like setting up for Top Choice.

is this trad or TR? it sounds like it's only TR. Also, this is the arete next to top choice?

It is on Matterhorn boulder which is next to Top Choice but you need to set up anchors at the top through an elaborate mechanism by first setting up anchors on Top Choice and then going over to the top of the Matterhorn Boulder and setting up an anchor using trad gear on top of the Matterhorn Boulder with directionals to allow the rope to hang over the SE Arete of Matterhorn Boulder. So it is a TR using trad techniques to make an anchor system.
