5 out of 5 stars Nice.

Definitely a mixed route as you will want gear above the ledge.

4 out of 5 stars nice for an arete

bring a piece (red tricam worked great) for pro just above the ledge as the 4th bolt can't be clipped from there and was probably the scariest of the bolts. another small cam or tri-cam up top is also nice as it gets a bit run out.
