Finishing on the upper arete.

Description 

Climb the first 40 feet of Bong Crack, clip a bolt on the right side of the diehedral, grab the rail and swing your feet out to the arete. Climb past 6 more bolts to the anchor.
Perfect rock, stellar position and fun arete climbing combine to make this a 4 star route.

Protection 

.2 to #1 camalots for bong crack, 7 quickdraws for the arete.

Cool route! The crux area stumped me for a bit but it ended up climbing really well once I got it dialed. Still a tough crux move.

If you don't have a rack on hand for the Bong Crack start, you can climb Class Act for a handful of bolts (use some runners) and find the logical traverse to the first bolt of WWE. There's a small runout for the traverse but it's pretty easy climbing. I'd do it this way again rather than lug cams up there.
