Description 

Start sitting matched on good sloper a foot or two to the left of the tree. Move up and right to another good sloper, match it and then throw straight up for the lip (try to hit above a small notch in the arete for full value). Mantle to topout. AVOID moving right to easier climbing when going for the lip. #7 in the beta photos.

Location 

right side of main face

Protection 

pads on rock landing and spot to avoid hitting the tree

A small two-finger crimp makes the second sloper match feel MUCH more manageable

Really cool and definitely overlooked problem. high right foot cammed in a jug for the final move makes it easier
