Description 

stand start on buldge and first finger pocket. follow the pockets in the crack (crux, really awkward. get up to the arete (using lowers the grade) and up to a good block at top of the corner. top outs pretty straight foward.


Location 

Go around right of the welcome crack boulder. find the cave. Obvious corner left of the entrance to the cave.

Protection 

pad, spotters, watch out of the tree 4 ft back from the route. not fun to roll into

If by 'arete', you mean the lip of the boulder just to the right of the corner as you near the top, it seems silly not to use it. That would be highly contrived. Not using it is a little more sustained and awkward, but not necessarily any harder.

I agree, I have always used the lip of the corner and it has always felt right about v2+, even using the lip. I would say just climb it naturally.
