Good, but reachy, moves over the roof. Definitely appears to be height-dependent.
The rock still needs to clean up a bit -- my second pulled off a softball sized hold from the right side of the arete.

The right side of the right arete needs some work.
I stayed to the right of the bolt line on my second scend. There is some vegetation on this side and does not appear to have been climbed much at all. About 1/3 of the way up I grabbed a nice jug, began pulling myself up on it and it ripped right off the wall. Luckily I held onto it and it did not fall on my belayer. I was much more cautious after this and found 2 large flakes which should probably have a crowbar taken to them. If you attempt this line, be cautious. The belayer should wear a helmet and be able to seek shelter underneath the overhang right above the belay area.
Just to the left of the bolt line was an awesome route, crux was sweet!
