Start just right of the Bihedral route (the huge dihedral) off of a good ledge and follow the arete past the initial 3 bolts, to easier ground (may use a small stopper before angle decreases). A couple more bolts lead to a double bolt anchor where one can belay or continue up past 3 or 4 more bolts (with a med/small cam to supplement) to another double bolt anchor. Really nice position with moves that never get harder than about 5.9+ or 5.10a. The crux moves are very well protected. This is a must do for Boulder Canyon climbers, but beware the approach as you must ascend steep 4th class terrain to get to the start.
