SDS at the southwest arete, move right and past the overhanging northeast arete of Tidal Wave at twin sidepulls and then traverse the smooth patina face using thin edges, sidepulls and creative body positioning to reach the Bedrock Arete which is taken to the top.

As an alternative it can be done from a stand start at the Tidal Wave arete using a flat edge on the left side of the arete and sidepulls on the right (this is the version described in the bouldering guide) which makes it slightly shorter and perhaps a little easier.

Originally I did the (fa?) problem from the arete, but several days later I extended it from a sit start left of the start listed in the book. I don't know why that extension didn't make it into the book?!?
