Left of the JBMFP is this striking right-slanting arete problem. Start with one hand on the arete and another on a small edge and then bump up to a good sloper, get into balance and then rail out the arete about halfway until possible to throw a foot over and rock onto the slab above. Taller climbers seem to have a slight advantage on this problem. Two stars out of five.

Per the most recent guidebook this would be considered False Grit (v3). True Grit (v4) continues up the arete to the top of the boulder and does not rock over onto slab. Definitely harder to continue up arete.
