Around the corner from the arete is a hand crack (just left of the off-width). Follow the crack line to a small roof, then ascend left to the small cave. From there follow the hand crack to the left until you reach a decent ledge. Finish on the face to the top.

Descent Options:

Walk down or rappel.

5 out of 5 stars Challenging hand crack

The sequence to get over the small roof is a little tricky at first. Solid hand jams from the roof to the cave, and a pumpy hand crack after the cave. This is a really fun route to hone balance and hand jam skills.
