This is an especially good route, one that I do every time I visit. The crux is moving right under the roof at the second bolt. The traverse left takes a #0.5 Camalot and is the second crux. Once on the arete, it doesn't ease up for a few move moves.
The fixed anchor is on the right side of the arete. The anchor to the left is for Stihl Water.
You can avoid the crux by starting as for LM, the large left-facing flake to the right. Climbed this way the grade is reduced to 5.10b or so.
