1 out of 5 stars Ugh

I did this as described in the guidebook. Only the moves up to and just past the first 2 bolts are interesting. Instead of climbing the lieback crack I traversed underneath it. The 3rd bolt I clipped was the one below the lieback crack, and the 4th is out on the face after turning the arete. Horrible rope drag here, so I climbed back and unclipped the 3rd bolt, then headed to the top.
