Description 

We TR'ed a line to the right of Joy that basically works the broken area to the right of Joy close to the arete. Surely it's been climbed before.

Start off with a couple of quick left layback moves, then move right of the flake, and proceed up a few face moves to a mini-roof. Power over that, and face climb above. We tried both left and right of the rib after that, both are good climbing (right is more interesting).

It has more joy than Joy.

Location 

Do the same approach and descent as for Joy.

Protection 

We used the same toprope anchor we used for Joy just moved it over. A basic rack of nuts & tricams would probably protect this pretty well.
