Climbed a variation of this problem that finishes straight up instead of around the arete. Not sure if something broke on the original line but I couldn't figure out how to continue around the arete. Felt about the same grade. I made a video of what I climbed so others can try it.

Hey Elias, this looks really neat. The last time I was at the boulder (a couple of months ago) all of the holds I saw were intact. The move around the arete is pretty thrashy and super rough on the finger tips, this variation looks a lot nicer to be honest!
