Nice finger jams to hand jams. I'd give it 3 stars if it was a longer. Worth doing.
You can't see from the ground, but there are chains on top of the arete.

Very fun climb. A bit insecure/cruxy getting off the ground to the bolt.

You may be tempted to climb the next crack to the left of TPRSPC - it starts on a fun looking hand crack up through some solidly wedged flakes and goes to the same top anchors... Don't get lured in! My buddy lead this and the upper half of the route is mossy, dirty climbing. Maybe it could be cleaned up, but on lead it's a palm-sweating tough time up there currently. It can be top roped from the TPRSPC anchor.
